A new exhibit from the Northwest Watercolor Society will be featured in Harbor History Museum's Temporary Gallery starting in April. The exhibit will open on April 23rd and will run through June 2nd. Admission to the exhibit is free with a Harbor History Museum membership, and included in the price of admission for non-members.
The Northwest Watercolor Society was founded 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.
The Society decided in 1992 to extend the offer of membership to all residents of the United States of America and Canada. This expansion afforded the opportunity for artists across the entire North American continent, not only membership, but also the occasion to exhibit their art in what has become our most eagerly anticipated yearly event, the NWWS Annual International Open Exhibition. Now in 2011, the Society has once more expanded its outreach – this time, worldwide! We have become truly international in all definitions of the word – by opening our membership and entry into our exhibitions to watermedia artists universally!
Recognized by The Artists Magazine as one of the ten most prominent watercolor societies in North America, NWWS continues to gain international attention and exposure.
