The Aquarelle Society was organized in 1996 with six artists from the West Shore area. Today the membership consists of 18 local artists painting for personal enjoyment, artistic fulfillment and professional development. The Society members have many years of painting experience and each is an accomplished watercolorist participating in local and regional art shows and juried competitions. The Society also organizes art shows of member’s work at local galleries.
Bob Parry is a member of the Aquarelle Watercolor Society and was previously the Director of Planning and Economic Development for the City of Westlake. Bob has been painting in watercolors for the last ten years taking classes at Bay Arts, The Beck Center and with the Aquarelle Society.
