From 24 to 26 August 2021, 11am to 7pm daily, the International Watercolour Society presents the 1st Singapore IWS International Watercolour Art Festival and Exhibition – The Journey of Recovery.
The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 devastated and changed what humanity has known as normal, affecting all aspects of lives and livelihoods. As humanity seeks to build their societies based on this “new normal”, we see humanity’s resilience, like a rubber ball in water pushed to the bottom of a lake, though it may contract a little, yet given the opportunity, able to rise again and be restored to shape.
Russia 俄罗斯-Elena Lobovikova ‘Light and Water’ 38x56cm
IWS Singapore’s 1st International Festival was conceived on this backdrop of humanity’s toughness and ability to pull through; the journey to recovery. Through our sadness, death, destruction and despair, even in the past year, yet we see glimmers of hope arise in the horizon.
Through this art exhibition, the IWS hopes the showcase the wonderful award winning works of international watercolour artists, and seek to encourage our audience to celebrate life in the journey of recovery. Let us rejoice in the possibilities and wonder of life, celebrating lives and livelihoods, through our people, environment and nature – as depicted poignantly through the wide range of works by artists all over the world. Through this art exhibition, the IWS hopes to connect with a wider international audience and bridge diversities in cultures, colours, beliefs and lifestyles.
