The Philadelphia Water Color Society will be hosting the 118th Anniversary International Exhibition of Works on Paper. The exhibition will include not only water colors but soft pastels, acrylics, graphite, gouache, charcoal, pen & ink, colored pencil and hand pulled prints. PWCS was founded in 1900 to bring attention to those artists using aqueous media and held its first exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
The Juror of Selection for the 118th exhibition is Alan Wylie of British Columbia. The Judge of Awards is Alvaro Castagnet who resides in Montevideo, Uruguay when not traveling the globe giving workshops. Speaking of which, he will be giving a workshop and a demo at the Wayne Art Center, Wayne, Pa. during the exhibition.
We are reaching out to invite your members to participate. We think that this is a great opportunity for all artist who use any of the media listed above to exhibit. Not only is it a prestigious exhibit but there are over $ 8000.00 in prizes including $1500.00 PWCS Award of Excellence.
