“Another 4020 Evening,” a watercolor painting by Nancy Dee of Haxtun, has been juried into the 22nd Annual Colorado Watercolor Society State Exhibition March 2-24, hosted by Foothills Art Center in Golden.

Last year’s exhibition drew visitors from across the state, as well as local media. This year, Foothills’ newly-renovated galleries will display 92 exciting works in the watercolor medium, selected by world-renowned juror, Thomas W. Schaller.

“Just getting into the show is an honor,” said Dee of her selected painting. Not only will her piece be on display, Dee will also be doing a demo at the show on Saturday, March 16.

This year’s juror is considered one of the foremost architectural artists in the country. Schaller enjoyed a 20-year career as an architect in New York City. Now a full-time watercolor artist living in Los Angeles, Calif., Schaller’s work has been exhibited all over the world.

He holds Signature Member status at both the American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society and is featured in many national and international publications. Schaller has also authored two well-known books, “Architecture in Watercolor” and “The Art of Architectural Drawing.”

Marcio Correa, CWS President commented, “We are thrilled to once again partner with Foothills Art Center to present the upcoming CWS State Show. The high quality artwork and caliber of this year’s juror will be well complemented by the beautiful venue, great promotion and professional organizational skills of the Foothills Art Center team.”


Nancy Dee’s “Another 4020 Evening” is selected for the Colorado Watercolor Society State Exhibition at Foothills Art Center in Golden.

The media and general public are invited to attend the opening reception on Friday, March 1 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Foothills Art Center. Many of the exhibiting artists are expected to attend.
