Watch Online: Artistry Awash Artists Panel

The artists panel of John Salminen, Andy Evansen and Nanci Yermakoff kicked off our fall season with a discussion of topics ranging from palettes and process to worldwide watercolor markets. If you missed this special evening, our friends and hosts at Artistry recorded the event and you can watch it here.

Keep in mind that the final days to see the Artistry Awash Watercolor Exhibition are upon us as the exhibition ends October 14. You won’t want to miss it!
