Trish Crowe, President

Welcome to The Virginia Watercolor Society 2023

What an important time to embrace creativity, painting and watermedia. Coming through the pandemic, we have witnessed the power of art to lift the spirit, embrace the power of the moment, and remind us that art is the cornerstone of our culture.

We have four years of exhibitions planned around the state of Virginia for you, as an artist, to enter or visit either in person or online. While you must be a resident to become a VWS member, you are always invited to visit our 2022 gallery to view a panoply of paintings sure to inspire.

It is our hope to widen the net around the state for more opportunities to gather,
celebrate art and one another.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with your ideas.

Trish Crowe, President
