“Travels with an Artist: Original Watercolors” by Evelyn Spindler will be on exhibit from Aug. 22 to Sept. 25 in the Original Building’s art gallery at George Mason’s Arlington Campus. These watercolors include landscapes, seascapes, and interiors and exteriors from Virginia to the Southwest to Latin America and the Pacific. All works are signed by the artist and will be available for sale to raise money for art history students. The artist’s husband, Frank Spindler, a former George Mason professor of history, offered the Department of History and Art History his late wife’s works to benefit the students.

“We are delighted with the opportunity,” says Carol Mattusch, Mathy Professor of Art History. “Many of these paintings are matted and framed and all are within affordable prices ranging from $20 to $125. This is a wonderful chance to own original watercolors.” The works will be sold during a reception on Sunday, Sept. 12, from 2:30 to 5 p.m., as well as throughout the showing of the exhibit.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Christina Hitchcock at 703-993-8192 or
