Philadelphia Water Color Society
A Long Tradition
Established in 1900, the Philadelphia Water Color Society has been supporting artists working with watercolors and other media on paper ever since. We do this through exhibitions, workshops, demos, and other means of community support.
The Society currently enjoys the participation of over 500 members from the greater Philadelphia area, elsewhere in the United States, and from around the world. Membership does have its benefits.
The International Exhibition of Works on Paper, now in its 122nd year, was on display in West Chester PA during November 2022.
The 2023 Members Show will be on display online starting March 31, 2023. Submissions open January 14.

We produce events throughout the year, including demos, multi-day workshops, plein air painting, and member meetings. Typically, our events are held in-person but many of these have been moved online during the pandemic.
