SDWS 39th International Exhibition

Come enjoy artwork from all over the world at the San Diego Watercolor Society! This special exhibition is free and open to the public.


Be an IRAngel

If you’re required to withdraw IRA funds annually, A DIRECT TRANSFER to SDWS (non-profit #92-139732) will not count as income and could help SDWS enormously! (But it can’t be deducted as a donation.)


 Western Fed

As a friendly reminder to SDWS artists, entries to the 45th Exhibition of the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies can now be submitted at the SDWS website. Once you are logged in, just go to the Shows/Exhibitions tab, and then down to the Western Fed item.  A limit of three artworks may be submitted. We are hoping that a substantial number of our artists will be accepted into this show, to be held in Boise, Idaho in June 2020.  At the last Western Fed show, held here in San Diego in May 2019, 26 of the accepted artists belonged to SDWS.  While entries will be accepted until January 10, 2020, don’t wait too long and thus miss out on this great exhibition!  Contact Ralph Kingery or Ann Slater at westernfed@sdws.org with any questions or for more information.
