Tony Foster in Conversation at The Foster Museum
WaterMarks: Watercolour Diaries from Swamps to Icebergs
Water, whether in solid, liquid, or gaseous form, prodigious or ephemeral, is a necessary element for life and quintessential in transforming landscapes over the eons. It is also the foundation for Tony Foster’s largest Journey series to date: WaterMarks: Watercolour Diaries from Swamps to Icebergs.
Between 1998 and 2002, Foster explored the frozen Arctic, neotropical rainforests of Honduras and Guyana, underwater coral reefs of the Indian Ocean, marshes of Cornwall, geysers and rivers of the American West, and swamps and rivers of the American South to produce seventy-nine paintings of tremendous variety.
Join artist-explorer Tony Foster as he recounts some of his experiences creating WaterMarks: Watercolour Diaries from Swamps to Icebergs. Tony has a lot to cover with The Foster Museum’s Co-Director, Anne Baxter. Expect a colorful PowerPoint presentation to enhance Tony’s engaging stories of his process and these memorable experiences.
