The annual spring exhibition of the West Texas Watercolor Society will be on display in the Fine Arts Gallery. Initially organized in 1962 and formally chartered by the State of Texas in 1973, the Society was instituted for the purpose of promoting the highest aesthetic standards in the art of watercolor painting. Artists from across the region will present their creations in a wide range of watercolor styles and methods. Displayed in the Foyer Gallery is the spring exhibition of the Art League of West Texas, a nonprofit organization that supports artists through education, networking and exhibition while sharing the experience of visual arts with the West Texas community. During the Art Trail the Art League will host an art demonstration for patrons in the Foyer Gallery.
