West Virginia Watercolor Society History

In 1984 a group of artists organized for these purposes:

* To promote and insure the high standards of the art of watercolor painting in the state of West Virginia.

* To guide and assist the student and aspiring watercolor artist in West Virginia.

* To encourage within the general public the advancement and understanding of the broad scope of watercolor painting.

These fifty-four artists thus became the Charter Members of the West Virginia Watercolor Society.

In the years since that beginning these purposes continue to be met by holding watercolor workshops, publishing the Newsletter, and by hosting both juried and non-juried exhibitions. Uninstructed "paint-out" weekends are also held annually.

You are welcomed and encouraged to join with WVWS as we continue to pursue these goals.
