Anyone else been drifting off to the dulcet tones of Bob Ross and his Joy Of Painting Show on Netflix lately?

If you haven’t we recommend giving it a try, the process is honestly as mesmerising as his magnificent hair.

Regardless, if you’re a fan of mesmerising art the Watercolour Society Of WA and City Of Fremantle are presenting an International Watercolour Exhibition that will be running from March 13 until April 13 at the historic Moores Building in Fremantle.

The exhibition is free, and will showcase 180 watercolour paintings from various Australian and International artists across 18 countries in total.

In addition to the exhibition, the Watercolour Society will also be hosting a series of different workshops across the month, some of which will be free!

The exhibition’s official opening night will be on March 13 at the Moores Building, with guests speakers Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt, and acclaimed artist Joseph Zbukvic, who will also be hosting workshops during week one.

Keen local artists can also enter the Plein Air painting competition, to be conducted on Saturday 14 March and featuring over $6000 worth of prizes (more info HERE).
