American Watercolor Society: 151st International Exhibition

The American Watercolor Society (AWS) is a nonprofit membership organization that began in 1866 to promote the art of water media. Each year the AWS holds a juried exhibition that draws thousands of entries from artists throughout the world. The top selections from forty artists are included in a traveling exhibition, touring museums and galleries nationwide. This exhibition includes portraiture, landscape, still life, abstract imagery and more.

Escondido artist and curator, Linda A. Doll, has brought together ten of our regional signature member level artists from the American Watercolor Society and National Watercolor Society.
