‘A World Tour’ Watercolor Exhibit
Featured At Sunset River May-June

Press Release

April 26, 2005 – Calabash, North Carolina (NC) - An exhibit of new watercolors by Joan Sanders is being featured at Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC from May 2 through June 18. The show,Rique Whir Stork by Joan Sanders which is entitled “A World Tour,” is a collection of works inspired by Sunders’ many trips through Europe, China and the United States.

Sanders, originally from Long Island, New York, has lived in Calabash, North Carolina with her husband for over 10 years. She is well known for her vibrant watercolors of European and local scenes. “Color is what inspires me,” says Sanders, “and I love painting water. Some of the paintings in this show feature water as part of the theme.” The artist feels her early experience in oil painting had added a richness and depth to her work that is not often associated with watercolor. Her scenic detail allows us to experience along with her the quaintness of a German town or the exuberance of a Parisian flower market.

Sanders is a member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina as well as the Wilmington Art Association, Waterway Art Association and Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild.

On Saturday afternoon, June 11, from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m., Sunset River Marketplace will be holding its third anniversary reception, at which gallery visitors will be able to meet Joan Sanders and many other artists who exhibit at the gallery.

Sunset River Marketplace has, since opening in 2002, become an important artistic center for Brunswick County. In its 10,000 square-foot space, many local and regional artists working in a wide range of media are represented. The facility also offers custom, on-site framing as well as art classes and workshops, including after-school and summer programs for children.

The gallery is located on NC 179, just one-eighth mile from the South Carolina border. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Call 910-575-5999 for more information or directions. Visit the website at www.sunsetrivermarketplace.com.
