Exhibit Title: Watercolors of Bucks County
Dates: November 19, 2017 - January 5, 2018

About: Joanna Kranansky is a Bucks County artist whose studio and gallery are in her home in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Her exhibitions include both original watercolors and limited edition reproductions. Joanna's love of detail and color is evident in her rendering of architectural subjects. She has a fascination and interest in historical buildings, barns and covered bridges, making Bucks County the perfect subject.

As a professional artist for more than 35 years, she exhibits her artwork during the late spring, summer and early fall season, allowing her to paint full time during the winter. She conducts workshops teaching the techniques of watercolor media, exhibits in galleries, art competitions, public exhibitions and one "woman" shows. Although her watercolors are predominantly for the public, she has accepted limited commissions for both corporate businesses and individuals.
