`Wonderful Watercolor' at Arts Council Gallery

The Carroll County Arts Council will present Wonderful Watercolor, featuring the paintings of Westminster residents Eduardo de la Cruz and Lucille Kerns.

De la Cruz has been a watercolor hobbyist for more than 20 years, finding painting to be a relief from daily stresses, including his psychiatry practice in Carroll County. He is self-taught, having studied Chinese brush painting techniques in addition to mastering Western watercolor techniques.

Kerns, born and raised in England and recently settled in Carroll County, is a member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society and is an officer in the Carroll County Artists Guild. She works from her own photographs and props to maintain originality in her paintings, many of which feature picturesque country landscapes and rustic natural scenes.

Wonderful Watercolor will be on display at the Arts Council Gallery from Monday to Aug. 2. An opening reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. July 11 in the gallery, 15 E. Main St., Westminster.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. The gallery is closed until Monday.
