2018 Green Mountain Watercolor Exhibition

The new galleries inside a restored, historic barn are home to this unique exhibition of more than eighty outstanding watercolor paintings from across North America.  The exhibition originated in 2012 as a small, regional show by eight members of the Vermont Watercolor Society and is now one of national stature.

A panel of jurors, holding membership in national watercolor societies, selected the best paintings from a large pool of entries for the exhibition itself.

Valley Arts is honored to have the nationally acclaimed watercolor plein air artist, Richard Sneary, NWS as the Judge of Awards for 2018. A complete list of the awards — the artists and the award donors, is listed below.

The generous sponsorship by Valley Arts corporate partner, Lareau Farm Home of American Flatbread, enables Valley Arts to make this exhibition free to the public.
