They have an accomplished and vibrant group of artisans who express emotions through acrylic and watercolor artworks. The society is non-profit and run by volunteers whose aim is to promote, educate, and display watercolor works and various water media arts both nationally and regionally. The National Juried Watermedia Exhibition is the society’s largest and best known show.
