The Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) has announced that Jacqueline Tribble of North Bend has been chosen as one of the 60 artists to participate in the 77th annual International Open Exhibition, on display through June 2 at the Harbor History Museum, 4121 Harborview Drive, Gig Harbor.

All are welcome to attend an opening reception, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, April 29. Following the reception, artists are encouraged to sharpen their plein air painting skills in scenic Gig Harbor.

Tribble’s painting, Northwest Sunrise, was chosen by internationally known juror Keiko Tanabe out of more than 450 entries from nine countries and 16 states.

“Watercolor is said to be an unforgiving medium as it does not hide what’s beneath a brush mark,” said Tanabe. “To make final selections I looked for a mastery of technical skills, a strong composition, originality, and perhaps more importantly, how the artist communicated their emotion through their unique expression.”

Tribble’s interest in art began at a very early age; she studied art throughout her schooling and completed a bachelor’s degree of Fine Arts in Painting from the University of Washington. During her studies she traveled to Rome, where she began to explore and hone her artistic skills and interests. After finishing her degree, she went to New York and Europe with sketchbooks in hand, visiting some of the world’s most renowned art museums and galleries.

Her work has been exhibited and collected in several countries including the US, Italy, and the United Kingdom. She loves living in the Pacific Northwest, as there is never a shortage of inspiration. The moody weather fronts, unique flora and fauna, and the dramatic mountains and coastlines are among her favorite subjects. For more information about Tribble, visit her website,
