About the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society & Waterworks Exhibition

The original membership of 20 was one of the first groups to be affiliated with the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. The membership of the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society has grown to over 250 artists who enjoy this opportunity to explore and share their broad range of styles and techniques.

The Pittsburgh Watercolor Society presents two major exhibits per year and others as opportunities become available. Waterworks is a members-only show with awards selected by a regional juror. Members choose their best piece to exhibit. Aqueous Open is an international juried exhibition with entries open to artists from around the world. The show is selected by a nationally, and in some cases, internationally, known juror.

Membership in the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society is a privilege and an exciting way to meet artists who share a common interest in watermedia. New members are juried in twice a year, spring and fall, by a panel of Board members.
