Opening Reception: Sunday, January 8, 2-4PM
Known for their forward thinking approach and unexpected points of view, NAWA members Kathleen Alexander, Carol Carter, Mark Mehaffey, Thomas Schaller, Nicholas Simmons and Keiko Tanabe, push boundaries and break through the traditional definitions and restrictions of media and artistic genres. Whether through the unique application of color, the subtle laying of media or the intimate focal point of subject, each artist delivers a forward thinking and unique viewpoint.

"from granville island - vancouver"
Only in darkness is thy shadow clear.
The City's fiery parcels all undone,
Already snow submerges an iron year . . .
O Sleepless as the river under thee,
Vaulting the sea, the prairies' dreaming sod,
Unto us lowliest sometime sweep, descend
And of the curveship lend a myth to God."

Thomas W. Schaller - Watercolor Artist
Even with spring making its way across the landscape here, our thoughts are never far lately from the enormous troubles facing the nation of Japan.
It is in this light – and following the lead of my friend and fellow watercolor artist Keiko Tanabe - that I would like to dedicate this edition of my newsletter to the ongoing relief efforts in Japan by offering my painting “Huntington Gardens” for auction here.
All proceeds from the winning bidder will be donated in full directly to the Japanese Red Cross.
To make a bid, contact me via email - email@example.com . Please begin at U.S. $200 and bidding will close at midnight Friday, 18 March 2011. The winner will be contacted via email shortly thereafter.
As individuals, we can often feel helpless in light of such a disaster, but by joining forces through our art , we can hope to make some small difference.
Thomas W. Schaller
This painting was completed in my studio from a sketch done
on site in the beautiful Japanese gardens at the Huntington, near
Pasadena, California in March 2011.

Konstantin Sterkhov : Konstantin was kind enough to interview me recently for his fascinating blog on practitioners of watercolor. And although I'm very happy to be featured, the vast range of artists he features is extremely impressive.
Fernando Pena: This blog is really indispensable reading for anyone at all interested in watercolor arts. My friend and colleague Fernando applies his considerable creative energies to featuring an extremely wide range of artists - past and present - artists' materials, and techniques.
