Jennifer Lange is leading the Tallahassee Watercolor Society’s annual Brush Strokes exhibition for the third year in a row.
A long-time member, the watercolorist is also the mind and heart behind the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital (TMH) Rehab “COVID Heroes” painting project which has gifted portraits to countless essential workers during these uncertain times. Although the exhibit looks a little different than in past years, Lange is always up for a challenge.
“Brush Strokes survives!” exclaims Lange. The juried show is currently being hosted on COCA’s digital gallery and will be available to view through Nov. 16. “The good news is that we, as a watercolor society and a community of people, are growing and adapting to a new ‘normal.’”
While Lange admits it was “touch and go” for a while, she is pleased with the end result—an online exhibition which features 42 works from 24 local and regional artists.
“The virtual environment is enabling the art to reach more people than ever,” continues Lange. “[The artists] overcame the emotional and physical disruption in their lives that caused artistic paralysis in others. They created art that can be shared with others and evoke a spirit of resilience, creativity and adaptability. Their spirit inspires.”
