AquaVenture is one of the top exhibitions put on by the Kentucky Watercolor Society. This year’s juried show features 39 paintings by 29 artists. The organization was formed in 1977 to promote the painting medium of watercolor. Since then, its membership has increased to more than 400 artists. The annual show tried something new in 2012 — usually open to members and non-members working in watercolor, they decided to accept other water-based media such as gouache and acrylic. “We want to include more artists in Louisville and Southern Indiana, to expand (AquaVenture) to make it one of the best shows in the area,” says director of exhibitions Nevenka Martinovic. The exhibit will be open during the Oct. 26 FAT Friday Hop. —Jo Anne Triplett
