  • When: 7 – 23/11/2014
  • Who: co-curated by Charles Williams and Francesca Flowers

Wash – watercolour in contemporary art, co-curated with Charles Williams, featuring 25 artists.

To make watercolour a better-known and more highly regarded medium
This exhibition brings together the work of artists who rarely, if ever, work in watercolour, along with those well known for their expertise in it: those highly regarded and those little known. It is a chance to see watercolour used in an exploratory, chancey way, hung right next to work made with planning and forethought; work made in the light of ancient tradition against work that might seem to deny the very idea of a past.
Francesca Flowers is a curator, RESORT member and events organiser, Charles Williams is an artist and writer whose book Basic Watercolour: How To Paint What You See prompted the show.
Margate, with its association with Turner, arguably Britain’s greatest Romantic watercolourist, seemed the ideal place.
