If you are not familiar with this line, then you are in for a TREAT!

QoR retains the best qualities of traditional watercolors while expanding the range and versatility of each color. QoR‘s exclusive binder provides more pigment in every brushstroke, offering a strength, range and versatility unmatched in the history of watercolors.

The unique QoR formulation accentuates the luminosity and brilliance of pigments even after drying. It provides the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolor, with colors that have as much vibrancy and fire as the best acrylic or oil paint.

QoR [pronounced ‘core’] has been formulated to embody the essence of watercolors while offering these unique qualities:

  • Vibrant, intense colors that stay brilliant even after they dry
  • Exceptionally smooth transitions, flow and liveliness on paper
  • Excellent resolubility in water and glazing qualities
  • Vivid depth of color with each brushstroke
  • Greater resistance to cracking and flaking
  • More density of color than traditional watercolors
  • Exclusive Aquazol® binder used in conservation

Dear ARTS Supporter:

2016 has been a year of positive transition for the Kirkland Art Center!

In June, the Board of Directors appointed Megan Ratcliffe as Executive Director (she was previously the KAC Membership Coordinator and Programming Director). In addition, the KAC has had many successful programs in the music arena with many more to come. Classes have enjoyed good attendance (Dance, Zumba, Nia, Line Dancing, Pottery, Painting and many more). Community events like the Annual Gala and the KAC RUN/Walk, The Spring Recital, The Nutcracker Ballet, monthly exhibitions like our Annual Members Show, the UCP Show, Mohawk Valley Watercolor Society, and Just Add Water II were just a few highlights from this past year.

The KAC also received great support from NYS Council of the Arts, Oneida County, and several other private funders. That said, the KAC could not continue its’ mission of promoting the ARTS without our faithful annual contributors, like you!

Please consider a gift to the Kirkland Art Center to maintain access to the ARTS everyday here in our region. The KAC has had a creative impact on our community since 1961, let’s keep the tradition alive!

Best regards,

Elizabeth C. Tantillo, KAC Board President

KAC Board of Directors, and Staff

Edie Danovitz, VP; Scott Leonard, Treasurer; Louisa Ruffine, Secretary; Steve Bellona, Barbara Decker, Martine Guyot-Bender, Amy James, Robert Knight, Mark Landrey, Nancy Robinson, and Gail Strout.
