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 - Kathleen Sullivan
I paint moments in time that are meaningful to me where my feelings interact with the subject matter.  A travel snapshot, a radiant flower, a nostalgic event, or a reflective moment leads me to a satisfying connection between my memory and the canvas.  Playing with colors and details draws me closer to the subject matter during the painting process.  I can narrate many of my paintings as they are reminders of precious memories and special keepsakes.   I paint what inspires me which is why I love painting.
