Important Update

“In consideration of the COVID-9 virus sweeping our country and the uncertainty that we all face, the Philadelphia Water Color Society has decided to postpone the opening of submissions for the 120th Anniversary International Exhibition. Submissions will now open on Friday, May 1st and close on Wednesday, July 1st, 2020. We still plan on having a live exhibition at West Chester University but that will depend on federal, state and local mandates. If we are still under a “stay at home” mandate, we will consider an online show. In the meantime, stay at home and be safe.”

Awards Winners


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.
