The PWCS 114th Annual Exhibition of Works on Paper hosted by the Community Art Center in Wallingford, PA, was by all measures a huge success. Even before the formal opening of the Exhibition, the PWCS Annual Members Meeting kicked things off with the election of Board Members and a very informative watercolor and acrylic painting demonstration by Winsor & Newton's Marta Kepta.
This was followed by a non-traditional but none-the-less exciting and highly entertaining demonstration by caricature artist Robert Vail. The opening reception and awards ceremony was was smashing success with a large turnout and a record number of awards and cash prizes exceeding $6,000! Add to all of this, an amazing workshop lead by renowned watercolorist Sarah Yeoman and a very informative and entertaining gallery talk with past PWCS President Jane Miluski and the 2015 Exhibition will have a high watermark to live up to!
Many thanks to all of the accomplished artists who submitted work to this year's exhibition. Juror of Selection Linda Baker and Juror of Awards Antonio Masi certainly had their work cut out for them!
The PWCS Board and membership would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone associated with the Exhibition for your many and varied contributions. We are sincerely grateful!
The Philadelphia Water Color Society
was founded in 1900 to offset the then common exhibition prejudice against watercolor. Chartered in 1922 as a corporation, it continued its mission of furthering works on paper (including all water media, pastel, charcoal, pencil, and hand pulled prints) by offering artists the opportunities to exhibit, and to offer the public a chance to learn about these media through professionally juried exhibitions. learn more
