Bowen Arts Center
Nationally known artists exhibit their beautiful works at the Bowen. This is an event you will not want to miss. This show rivals any you will see worldwide. It will be incredible.
The Bowen Center for the Arts is hosting the Georgia Watercolor Society’s 40th National Exhibition juried by renowned artist Paul Jackson. Each year this exhibit attracts extraordinary art from around the nation due to its reputation for generous awards and outstanding jurors.
This year over $10,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded making Georgia Watercolor Society one of the top awarding competitions in the country. And the National Exhibition is no slouch.
Eighty prize winning artists from 22 states have been accepted to display their works at The Bowen. It takes an entire day, three pizzas and 10 volunteers to unpack the 60 huge paintings that are shipped to The Bowen. It takes at least that effort to repack and return them after the show.
