Upon judging of the Annual Iowa Watercolor Society Exhibition, this show travels to various galleries across the state. Maquoketa Art Experience was honored to be the second location to which the show traveled. We exhibited 30 watercolor paintings, ten of which earned awards at the annual art show.
