Southwest Washington Watercolor Society

Watercolor adventurists join together to create and celebrate art on a regular basis as the Southwest Washington Watercolor Society. Many members began painting as kids, some found this pleasure during retirement years, and some have made art a lifelong career. Where ever you are at in your creative journey with watermedia we invite you to come along with us – and get your brush wet..

Volunteer Sign-ups for the Fall 2019 Exhibition

Vancouver Art Space – Vancouver Mall Suite 283

Our Fall show, which includes Associate and Juried members, will be held at Vancouver Art Space in their new location at the East end of the Vancouver Mall next to the Vancouver Library. This venue has lots of wall space in an art environment, long open hours, shop staff to handle sales and lots of foot traffic by art enthusiasts to view our work.

Weekends are often busy in the shop and we have been asked to help provide some staffing at these peak times to answer questions and connect with our audience. We would ask you to greet guests, mention SWWS and our mission to promote watercolor in Southwest Washington, and remind people to select and vote for their favorite painting for recognition as the People’s Choice. That’s it!
