Two watercolor artists in a joint exhibition at Nuance Galleries, 804 S Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, bring different approaches to a medium that invite a closer look. Taylor Ikin is a longtime professional painter who switched several years ago to an atypical shiny, nonabsorbent paper that produces glowing surface effects for her landscapes. Laura Waller is a professional financial planner with a longtime record as an arts advocate who paints in watercolor as an avocation, using traditional paper that results in a more realistic style. Both women create lovely works and any sold during the show’s run through Dec. 8 will result in a contribution to the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center. Shown are Waller’s The Race, top.
