Area artists and collectors have their ears perked for a show opening December 5 at the American Art Company in Tacoma, Washington. That’s in part because the juror for the event is noted California painter Jeremy Lipking. 

Members of Plein Air Washington Artists (PAWA) painted for this exhibition from late spring through fall, and the entries were juried in to the show, which is titled “Nature’s Gift of Water.” The exhibition features plein air studies and larger studio pieces based on the studies. As the title suggests, the theme is water in all forms.
