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 - Linda Daniels Cermak 

Linda painted in watercolor, on and off, for a number of years while working full time. Once retired she decided to devote more time to developing new skills and to experimentation in her works. The inspiration for her paintings comes from nature,space, and an active imagination. She enjoys using different surfaces, techniques, and paints. In her space paintings she employs the use of black plastic paper with liquid watercolor and acrylic paints. Linda’s favorite part of art creation is the journey, errors, and experimentation from the beginning of a new piece to the finished work.
