Sandler Center Hosting Opening Reception for ‘Creative Expressions’ Art Exhibition May 8

The Sandler Center for the Performing Arts, Sandler Center Foundation and the Virginia Beach Cultural Affairs Department will host an opening reception for "Creative Expressions," an exhibition by the Chesapeake Bay Watercolorists, on Monday, May 8, from 6-8 p.m. in the Sandler Center Art Gallery mezzanine lobby, 201 Market St.

The exhibition features watercolor art from multiple artists. The group, which began as a group of watercolor artists painting together at the Bow Creek Recreation Center in 1980, seeks to bring together watercolor artists of all levels of experience to share knowledge, provide opportunities to exhibit, and learn more about the art and practice of watercolor.

Artists come from various backgrounds and skill levels and hold American Watercolor Society and Virginia Watercolor Society memberships. Several of the artists sell their work internationally and have paintings in private collections throughout the country.

Chesapeake Bay Watercolorists is open to all local artists and art enthusiasts who have a shared passion for watercolor media and share the group's mission statement. They conduct monthly programs with visiting artists, demonstrations, critiques, and workshops.

Artwork in this exhibition will be on display until late July. To learn more about the Chesapeake Bay Watercolorists, inquire about their artwork, or to join, visit www.cbw-art.com.
