Five signature artist members of the Delaware Watercolor Society will display their paintings in the Baltimore Watercolor Society Mid-Atlantic Exhibition through Saturday, July 16, at the Black Rock Center for the Arts, Germantown, Md.

Delaware Watercolor Society, a registered nonprofit, began in Rehoboth Beach in 2004 with a handful of painters. Today it is one of the top watercolor societies in the region. An Artist member is the highest level of membership in the society and is a widely recognized, juried honor offered in most major art organizations. It denotes the highest level of artistic proficiency within DWS and allows Artist members to identify such recognition by using DWS initials after their names when signing artwork, as well as in any publications, personal or public announcements and publicity.

Juror Joyce Hicks, a signature member of the American Water-color Society and past president of the Central Texas Watercolor Society, selected 95 artists' paintings from 360 entries for the 2016 exhibition. The DWS artists selected for the BWS Mid-Atlantic Exhibition are Anne Crown-Cyr, John Hassler, Christine Heyse, Nancy Mysak and Dale Sheldon. Crown-Cyr and Sheldon are residents of Rehoboth Beach. Hicks also will present a sold-out watercolor workshop for DWS members in June.
