Philadelphia Water Color Society
About the Exhibition
This year's exhibition showcases a total of 165 entries. These hail from 24 states throughout the United States and eight countries from around the world. The majority of works are either watercolors or pastels but many employ other media, including acrylics, charcoal, colored pencils, graphite, and pen and ink. Subject matter and styles are similarly varied. For more on these works you can download the Juror of Selection's and Juror of Award's statements.
These works are for sale. If you are interested in a particular work or in an artist, fill out the form on this page and we'll forward your information to the artists. What happens after that is between you and the artist. The Philadelphia Water Color Society does not take a commission.
