Watercolor Society of Alabama

Promoting and Supporting Watermedia Since 1939

About Us

The Watercolor Society of Alabama—–was organized in 1939 by a group of artists. The first president was Dawn Kennedy, a well-known college art teacher. The first Society meeting, and its first Exhibition, was held at Alabama College (now the University of Montevallo). The Society was organized for the purpose of advancing the art of watermedia painting in order to contribute to the enrichment of the State of Alabama cultural environment by providing an opportunity to the art viewing public to observe excellent artwork from all regions of the United States.

The Society supports and encourages members in their creative endeavors and offers incentives to artists working in watermedia through competitions, exhibitions, and workshops.

A quarterly newsletter is published to inform members of shows, workshops, members’ news and activities in which they may have an interest. Newsletters are also sent by electronic mail to keep members informed of significant news updates.
The Watercolor Society of Alabama hosts this website that provides low-cost gallery space for members; displays accepted entries and winners of exhibitions; links to other art websites, and information of interest to watermedia artists.
