The theme prompted member artists to reflect on new beginnings. Members interpreted this theme to depict the transition from winter to spring, budding spring fauna and flora, a new year, a new life or a new outlook on life. New Beginnings displays an exemplar celebration of the watercolor and is on display in both the Foley Hall Gallery and the Copley Common Room.

The Vermont Watercolor Society was founded by a small group of painters in 1995 and today is over 240 members strong, offering three levels of membership. The society is dedicated to promoting the awareness and appreciation of watercolor to their membership of all levels of ability and to the community by providing opportunities and venues for participation, education, fellowship, and exhibitions.River Arts is physically accessible for participants who use wheelchairs or other mobility aids, and those who prefer not to use stairs.
