Clarksville, Ark. -- Selections from the Mid-Southern Watercolorists 37th Annual Exhibit will be on display at the University of the Ozarks' Stephens Gallery during the month of October.

The selection of 18 colorful works from the juried exhibition depicts various approaches to the watercolor medium. The exhibit features traditional landscapes, detailed still-lifes, portraits and bold abstractions. This year's exhibit was held at the Cox Creative Center in Little Rock.
