Important Letter to All  Members Entering WSA Exhibitions

Exhibitions sponsored by the Watercolor Society of Alabama  

National Exhibition  During 2016, WSA will celebrate their 75th National Exhibition.  Artists from every state in the U.S. are eligible to enter the competition by submitting digital entries.  Original paintings accepted for the Exhibition are displayed at a different location within Alabama each year.  This is to give Alabama residents an opportunity to view the exhibition in their locality.

The Watercolor Society has been most fortunate in having the continuing support of businesses, art galleries and art organizations which allows it to offer over $7,000 in awards. This attracts the best artists, and the Society’s exhibitions represent the best in the field of watercolor painting.

WSA also sponsors two watermedia workshops in connection with the National and Alabama shows.

Alabama Members Showcase.  WSA sponsors an Alabama Members Showcase at the Birmingham, Alabama Public Library in September of every year.  This event is a tribute to the many volunteers of WSA who provide the expertise to make the National Exhibition a memorable event.

On-Line Exhibition.  The society also sponsors an On-line Exhibition.  Planning is in progress for the 2015 Exhibition.
