Members of the Brevard Watercolor Society (BWS) will present Watercolors of Olde Brevard, a series of watercolors based on pre-1955 photos of Brevard County, at the Eau Gallie Library on Nov 6 – Dec 2, 2023.
Historical societies and local residents provided BWS with original black and white photos that reveal the history and life of Brevard County prior to 1955. BWS artists applied their color interpretation of these old photos to create colorful paintings that showcase a sampling of transportation, people, agriculture, buildings and boats. This year’s show will include 18 paintings; a small description of the scene will accompany each painting. The paintings may also be purchased for your collection.
BWS originally created this series of paintings back in 2000 under the leadership of show chair Therese Ferguson. It proved so popular that it was repeated with different photos for three years running. Each year, the exhibition traveled to locations including Kennedy Space Center, the Florida Capitol, Evans Library, King Center and several of the Historical Society buildings in Brevard. Therese has brought the show back once again to showcase the history and life of Brevard County.
