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 - Ginya Truitt Nakata

My paintings stem from many distinct points of inspiration.  It could be the way sunlight creates a pattern through a window, the bubbles flowing through champagne, a mood created by the setting sun, or the craggy branches of a tree.  Bringing to life a fond memory of place, the beauty of our planet, 
or a rustle of fluttering wings through a paint brush gives a sense of hope and peace which I aspire to share with others.
