The Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) has announced its annual membership exhibition, “Waterworks Unlimited.” No ticket is required for the online show to see “some of the finest watermedia artwork I’ve had the honor of judging,” says juror Liana Bennett. The exhibition runs online only through June 30, 2021.
“The exhibition contains a tremendous representation of a broad range of styles,” comments Mike Thoreson, exhibition chair. “We had 422 entries from 16 states including Washington DC and international entrants from Taiwan, Hong Kong, India and Canada. How Liana was able to narrow the selection to 70 paintings is a wonder.”
The Northwest Watercolor Society (NWWS) was founded in 1939 in Seattle, Washington when a group of eight artists came together to form an organization dedicated to the celebration of watercolor. With a goal to inspire both a lasting interest in the art of watercolor painting and an appreciation for watercolor as an artful, imaginative medium, the history of NWWS began. From these modest beginnings, NWWS has grown into the internationally recognized, historically rich organization of today with a membership over nine hundred Signature, Lifetime and Associate Members across the USA, Canada, and internationally.
The NWWS has remained firmly rooted in its history, devoted to the philosophy of the Mission Statement of its Founders: To promote and elevate the art of watercolor and watermedia as a medium and to encourage the growth and creativity of its artist members.
