Glen Helen Atrium Gallery Exhibition:

Spring Bursts Forth: Watercolors by Enid’s Painters
March 1 - 30, 2011

Glen Helen Atrium Gallery is showing “Spring Bursts Forth: Watercolors by Enid’s Painters” from March 1 – 30, 2011. This exuberant display of watercolor paintings reflects the joyful return of green to the land, the season of Spring. The public is invited to meet the artists at the opening reception on Sunday, March 6th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm.

The Gallery is located in the Glen Helen Building at 405 Corry Street in Yellow Springs. Show hours are 9:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is free. Artwork will be available for purchase with proceeds supporting the Glen Helen Nature Preserve.

This group show includes paintings by 15 members of Enid’s Painters, a group of watercolor artists who have studied under well-known Springfield watercolor instructor Enid Willard. Willard has taught watercolor painting for 20 years, first through the Springfield Art Museum and now independently.

Several watercolorists regularly paint with Willard, learning and experimenting with new techniques, striving to improve artistic skills under her guidance. Many of her students are members of the Western Ohio Watercolor Society as well as the Fairborn Art Association. “Spring Bursts Forth” was organized by her students to honor their teacher and to thank her for inspiration. Enid will include a painting or two of her own in the show.
