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.
