Dylan Pierce is a very talented young artist whose watercolors will be on display at ArtCenter Manatee Dec 6, 2016 through Jan 20, 2017.

Dylan’s current work has come out of several trips to Africa which continues to remain the visual inspiration for many of his paintings. Experiencing the extraordinary beauty of Africa and its astonishing variety of wildlife has been something Dylan dreamed of as a boy, yet meeting the people of Africa deeply affected him. Their life situations can be difficult but with their unique sense of humor and communal joy they seem to triumph. Dylan’s watercolors have been published in a variety of prominent magazines including the cover story in The Art of Watercolor Magazine, Wildlife Art Magazine, Watercolor Artist Magazine, International Artist Magazine, and Museums and More Magazine.

While he is here, Dylan will conduct a 2-day workshop, Portraits in Watercolor. Space is almost taken so please reserve today!
