Opens Thurs, July 12, 6-8p: “Contemporary Watercolor” curated by Veronica RobertsMorgan Lehman Gallery, 535 W22nd St., NYC30 artist group show. Watercolor has been saddled with a bad rap. It hasn’t even earned the status of being uncool enough to be cool. With its history as a preferred medium of amateur painters, watercolor is all too easily overlooked or disparaged for its frequent association with trivial subjects and saccharine clichés. This exhibition features a group of diverse artists from around the country and abroad who engage the medium in varied, sometimes political ways that move beyond—and often take pleasure in subverting—watercolor’s traditional ties to subjects like flowers and ‘plein air’ landscapes.  - Aug 17th
