Watercolor Invitational


Jerry Smith, Jeanne McLeish and Rena Brouwer, three watercolor artists from across Indiana will be featured during the month of November at Gordy Fine Art & Framing Company. These artists were selected by Brian Gordy, a watercolor artist and owner of GFAF gallery. Says Gordy, “Aside from the fact that they are all consistent award winners, they are three of my favorite watercolor artists in Indiana. Each painter’s approach to the medium is distinctive, dynamic and decidedly different from each other’s work.”

Jerry Smith, a Crawfordsville resident, paints expressive, yet vividly detailed rural and city scenes that feature a unique undulating rhythm. He is a signature member of many prestigious organizations including American Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of Indiana and Transparent Watercolor Society of America.

Jeanne McLeish, a resident of Mooresville, brings her paintings of forest floors, creek-beds and ravines to life with sizzling, yet sophisticated, combinations of colors. Jeanne is also a signature member of Watercolor Society of Indiana and Transparent Watercolor Society of America.

Rena Brouwer, a resident of Piermont, paints spontaneous, dreamlike expressions of realistic subjects, exploiting the property of fluidity in watercolor. Her process involves facilitating the accidental effects brought on by adding washes onto wet paper, then reacting to those effects. Rena is a signature member of many organizations, including Transparent Watercolor Society of America, and Watercolor Society of Indiana.

Please join Brian and Genny Gordy for their final First Thursday reception as owners of Gordy fine Art & Framing Company. The reception is from 5:00-8:00 with a brief talk by the artists beginning at 6:00. Light refreshments will be served.
