In 1977, a small group of twenty watercolor painters got together to meet in each others' homes to share their interest in and knowledge of watercolor. The membership of this group gradually increased, and the Valley Watercolor Society was born. The original purpose of Valley Watercolor Society continues today: to promote interest, knowledge and appreciation of water media through meetings, exhibits, workshops, paint-outs, and workshops.
This year, artist Al Setton will judge the Valley Water Color Society exhibit. Al is the recipient of numerous awards and his art is shown throughout Southern California. The annual juried exhibit provides members a chance to show their best works. Numerous awards are presented. Original watercolors and prints are available for purchase.
Future Gallery 800 Exhibits Include (subject to change):
July 13 – August 17 ADG Photography Show
August 31 – October 5 Animals / Homefires
About the Valley Watercolor Society:
Valley Watercolor Society (VWS) is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for learning about and sharing watercolor painting as both a vocation and a hobby. The group of 300 members in the San Fernando Valley serves all in the greater Los Angeles area. VWS meetings feature demonstrations by accomplished artists in connection with VWS workshops where the participants paint and receive critique of their work.
