The Florida Watercolor Society, now in its 47th year, is one of the largest and most prestigious organizations of its kind in the country. Each year, about 600 member artists submit their work hoping to be among the 100 artists selected for the distinguished FWS Annual Exhibition. This year, judge Tom Schaller had his work cut out for him! The FWS 47th Annual Exhibition will be held at ArtCenter Manatee in Bradenton from September 7th through October 26th. Thirty-five of the paintings will travel onto two additional venues, and the Elliott Museum is proud to once again host the first stop for the FWS Traveling Show.
The Show will also feature additional works by FWS members who were selected for the 47th Annual Exhibition and live locally, truly celebrating the best of the best in Florida watercolor! Meet the locals at the Artists’ Reception Thursday, November 15th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm
