FWS 2017 Convention Cancelled

From FWS:   “TO ALL FWS MEMBERS:  Due to the approach of
CAT 4 hurricane IRMA toward south Florida, President Rita Szopinski and the board of Florida Watercolor Society has made the difficult decision to cancel this years’ workshops, convention and trade show scheduled for Sept 14-17.

If you need to cancel hotel reservations, please contact the hotel.

The exhibition reception at the Coral Springs Museum of Art has been postponed until a date in October to be announced later.

Hurricane Irma is extremely dangerous and we encourage everyone to prepare now and evacuate if necessary.

Be safe.
