Barbara Nechis

The Northern Arizona Watercolor Exhibition was held at the Sedona Arts Center from May 23 through June 24, 2001. The Juror for this event was Ms. Barbara Nechis. Ms. Nechis is the author of Watercolor from the Heart and The Creative Experience and her work has appeared in many publications and collections.

A graduate of the University of Rochester with her master's degree from Alfred University, Ms. Nechis is currently teaching seminars at the Pratt Institute. Ms. Nechis encourages experimentation with watercolors, stressing that artists who take risks develop faster than those who abide by the rules. After presenting traditional methods, Ms. Nechis shows how to play with them and how the natural environment inspires new ways of seeing and painting.
