PHILADELPHIA WATER COLOR SOCIETY
PWCS lost a superb artist and a dedicated supporter in Donald Patterson on January, seventh at the age of 88. Don served a very long time on the board of directors and designed the crest medal. To honor Donald Patterson, the Board of Directors has put aside $250 for a special Donald Patterson prize to be given at the 118th International Anniversary Works on Paper Exhibition. We would love to continue this prize past this year but we need your help. So please donate generously to honor a man who gave freely of his time and expertise.
FIRST PLACE WINNER: Falling Water, Donald Leong
Violet Oakley, George Bellows, Maxfield Parrish, Howard Pyle, John Singer Sargent, along with NC, Andrew and Jamie Wyeth are just a sampling of the legendary figures in American Art who have counted among their credentials membership in the Philadelphia Water Color Society. Today PWCS continues to support artists with opportunities for exhibitions and professional development. PWCS is one of the few art societies anywhere that accepts works on paper to include watercolor, pastel, charcoal, graphite, acrylic, gouache, colored pencil and hand pulled prints.
