A Celebration of Works on Paper

Founded in 1900 to offset the then common exhibition prejudice against watercolor, the Philadelphia Water Color Society is holding its 119th International Exhibition of Works on Paper through October, 11, 2019, at the Community Arts Center in Wallingford, Pennsylvania. Juried by Joseph Zbukvic (juror of selection) and Liz Haywood-Sullivan (juror of awards), the show includes watercolor, pastel, charcoal, graphite, acrylic, gouache, colored pencil, and hand-pulled prints.

Here are a few of the watercolor paintings that took top prizes.
