BAYarts spotlights watercolor in January
BAYarts will start the new year off with an adult student exhibition from the watercolor classes of Bernie D'Ettorre. It will have an opening reception on Friday, Jan. 6, from 7-9 p.m., and run until Jan. 28.
D'Ettorre was once taught by Diane Boldman, for whom the BAYarts Education gallery is named. As a member of the Ohio Watercolor Society, D'Ettorre has won several awards at all levels that include the "Best of Show" ranking.
She began teaching at BAYarts around 2010, and this show will feature her intermediate/advanced students. No specific theme will be employed. Instead, D'Ettorre says they will choose their best pieces of work from a number of subjects.
She teaches watercolor year-round at BAYarts, and her classes can be registered for on bayarts.net.
D'Ettorre says that what's so rewarding is when she can educate students beyond what they think they're capable of with their watercolors. "I love teaching what is supposed to be the most difficult of art mediums, and have the students discover how accomplished they truly are."
