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 November - Lorrie Herman 

My subjects strike me as narratives, an observation alive with colors. The miniature appeals to me as a short story, a brief encounter in life to which I am witness. The watercolor gives the piece a light fluidity that draws the observer into the scene. As the painter, I can take the time to study closely the details and preserve the moment, as mood, viewpoint and composition create the total.
