Palouse Watercolor Socius' annual show at the Dahmen Barn in Uniontown opens Nov. 3 with reception from 1 to 3 p.m. Exhibit will run through Dec. 1.

The featured artist is Betty Benson.

Palouse Watercolor Socius' has been open 42 years and is an integral part of Moscow's Heart of the Art Community, sponsoring annual art events and public workshops.

Benson was chosen for her commitment to watercolor in Idaho. Benson paints subjects that makes the viewer smile, said Julie Hartwig, Dahmen Barn manager.

She completed a bachelor's and master's degrees at The University of Idaho with several art courses included. She is an avid traveler domestically and internationally.

She initiated the idea of a 501(c)(3) tax exempt arts organization in the broader Palouse region, thus gaining approval of the Inland Northwest Watercolor Society.
