Water dreams

. May 17, 2012.

There’s nothing watered-down about water color. If the words put you in mind of soft-focus seaside scenes peddled to tourists, you’ll be pleasantly startled at the Michigan Water Color Society’s 64th annual traveling exhibition, coming to the Ann Arbor Art Center on Tuesday, November 8. The show presents 78 award-winning works from 69 Michigan artists, works that dazzle with their variety and virtuosity. Portraits, landscapes, compelling abstract works and surreal imagery — there’s something here for every taste. The show will be at the Art Center through Sunday, December 4. You can check out a sampling of the work at www.annarborartcenter.org, but don’t miss your chance to see the real thing. 117 W. Liberty St. 734-994-8004
