Interviews from the opening reception.
The annual juried exhibition is just as important to the host gallery as to the artists invited into the show.
MIDDLETOWN, Ohio -- Artists from all over the state hope to have their work selected every year into the Ohio Watercolor Exhibition. At the same time, insiders at the Middletown Arts Center see an important opportunity in hosting the touring show.
This is the 36th annual juried exhibition and the first time since 2007 that it has passed through the Middletown Arts Center. Middletown is one of just five cities on the exhibition's touring schedule.

The exhibition is on view through Feb. 8.
