PVW, based in the Maryland/ Virginia/D.C. area, is a juried society of watercolor painters

We are a nonprofit organization that seeks to promote the art and excellence of watercolor painting.
Our members include many watercolor instructors and artists who exhibit at prominent galleries, museums, and nationally acclaimed shows. Some serve as jurors; others give demonstrations and programs for art and community groups.

​Featured Artist for September- Tammy Wiedenhaefer


I paint what inspires me!  Although I paint many subjects, my main thrust is portraiture. I love to study the curves and shadows that make up a person’s expressions, like a landscape artist who loves to portray the rolling hills and trees. I find it comforting to know that I am creating something beautiful that will stand the test of time and says I was here.
