Capturing a century
Walter Chapman is a master of capturing the things he sees. His watercolors reflect the combat he was in during WWII, the cities he traveled to and, of course, the local landscapes the Sylvania resident has spent a lifetime exploring. 20 North Gallery is celebrating his astonishing career by throwing a party for his upcoming 100th birthday. The exhibition, Walter Chapman Centennial: Celebrating a Career in Art, opens with a reception on Thursday August 9, and includes decades of work highlighting the vibrant watercolors that have made him one of Northwest Ohio’s most beloved painters.
