About WFWS

The Western Federation of Watercolor Societies (WFWS) was formed in 1976 by the New Mexico Watercolor Society and included nine other watercolor societies. The purpose was to make a large and prestigious watercolor exhibition available at low cost to members for small and often isolated watercolor groups.

Visit the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies' website at wfws.org for more information.

Today, the WFWS includes over 5,000 artists in eleven regional watercolor societies and guilds. The WFWS encourages and recognizes artistic excellence and works to increase visibility of watercolor as an artistic medium through our annual juried exhibitions. The exhibitions are sponsored by WFWS and hosted by a regional member society.  Delegates meet annually (usually at the current show) to conduct general business and discuss the next year’s plans.  Each society hosts the show on a rotating basis.

If you have questions, please contact Ralph Kingery (Delegate) or Ann Slater (Alternate Delegate) at westernfed@sdws.org.
