A clear, almost cool night was a perfect setting in Charlottesville on Friday night, September 2 for the 25th Annual Exhibition of the Central Watercolor Guild! Guests nibbled on cake and wine, enjoyed the music of local musician Greg Brown, and heard James Warwick Jones, general manager of the Charles H. Taylor Art Center in Hampton, VA critique the paintings and announce the winners.
