The above paintings were all presented during the "Fluid Fields" exhibition.

The Painting Center, in New York City, recently hosted "Fluid Fields," featuring 30 contemporary artists working in watercolor. Highlighting the varied and experimental qualities of the medium, the exhibition included aluminum trays painted with watercolor by Ray Kass and plein air landscapes by Bernard Chaet, as well as Donald Holden's and Jacqueline Gourevitch's delicate night scenes. The show was curated by Susan Shatter, the president of the National Academy of Design, and featured work by Janet Fish, Harriet Shorr, and David Dewey. For more information, visit or

Also at The Painting Center through March 24 was "Phyllis Floyd: Recent Watercolors," featuring on-site watercolors of people in Madison Square Park and other Manhattan locations. Floyd started these works by settling into a shady spot where she could observe the scene and the people who gathered at the park. She would then try to capture the moment within the shifting positions and gestures of the figures as well as the changing light and shadows. See some examples of these spontaneous paintings at
