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 Artists for January 

Happy New Year from the Potomac Valley Watercolorists!!

Every month we feature the work of one of our artists.  However, to begin 2023, in January and February, we are spotlighting the work of some of our Board and Committee members.  These groups put in countless hours of work behind the scenes to ensure that PVW continues to be one of the premier watercolor organizations in the area.
