Santa Rosa artist Hal Wright has been invited by the Northwest Watercolor Society to show one of his paintings at its 74th annual International Open Exhibition, running from April 19 to June 6 in Tacoma, Wash.
Wright’s painting, “Bosc and D’Anjou Discover the Portal to Secret Valley,” was chosen for the exhibit at the American Art Company by the show’s juror, internationally recognized artist Donna Zagotta.
“I’m happy to have Hal’s whimsical work in this annual show,” said Zagotta in a statement released by the the Northwest Watercolor Society.
The juror selected 62 artists after reviewing 487 entries from 36 states and six countries.
“This show attracts some of the top watercolor artists from around the world. I’m extremely excited to be included,” said Wright, 68, who started painting just five years ago.
A graduate of Santa Rosa High School, Wright returned last summer with his wife, Diane, to live in Santa Rosa after a career in marketing research and consulting in the Bay Area and Portland, Ore.
