Estero watercolor artist Christine Reichow has been invited to exhibit in the prestigious Fabriano in Acquarello 2019 International Exhibition in Fabriano, Italy.

Christine’s painting, “Piccolo Fiore” meaning little flower, is 15-by-22 inches and features her signature gradient wash background. She found her inspiration for this painting at the Naples Botanical Gardens.

Fabriano in Acquarello was formed eight years ago to bring together watercolorists from all over the world to exchange ideas, techniques and inspire new creativity. The event will be held April 25 to April 29, 2019, and will include a collection of over 1,200 works from 80 countries. The paintings will be exhibited in 48 different places in the beautiful medieval city of Fabriano. The convention will present demonstrations, lectures and workshops by various watercolor masters.

“This exhibition is definitely going to be one of the highlights of my career,” says the extremely honored artist. “I will be traveling to Italy to experience the show first-hand. I’m sure it will be surreal to see my art hanging in such a beautiful and historic setting.”

Fabriano, situated in Umbria in the central mountain area, is known for its paper-making which began 700 years ago. Coincidentally, Fabriano watercolor paper has been Christine’s choice of paper for the last twenty years. A local museum in Fabriano features the history of paper-making techniques and traditions.

Christine’s watercolor paintings hang in public and private collections around the world. Along with magazine, newspaper and television features, she has received numerous awards. She is a Signature Member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Southern Watercolor Society, Watercolor West and the Florida Watercolor Society.

Christine’s fine art can be seen at Two Islands Gallery on Captiva Island, Sanibel Art and Frame on Sanibel Island, Creations Gallery in Punta Gorda, Naples Botanical Gardens and on her website
