Our Solo Show artist this year is Charles Schmauch, Best in Show winner in last year’s Elected Artist Show. Charles started painting watercolor about 40 years ago strictly as a hobby, with over the past 7 years being the most active. “I chose watercolor because, to me, it is the most exciting, spontaneous, unforgiving and challenging art media.” Please come by the gallery and see this beautiful watercolor artwork by award winning artist Charles Schmauch!
