NWS/CSPWC EXHIBITION EXCHANGE
ABOUT: VISIONS ADJOIN 2020
The Outstanding Water-media Artists of the USA and Canada Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the National Watercolor Society and the 95th Anniversary of the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour
About the NWS and CSPWC
The mission of both the National Watercolor Society in the United States and the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour is to encourage excellence of work in the watercolor medium. Each of these societies has grown from a nucleus of committed talented water-media artists into a determined group of contemporary artists who not only create outstanding water-based artworks but also build the appreciation of this medium by the general public through workshops, exhibitions, publications, competitions and seminars. The NWS emerged in the Los Angeles, California, area and grew to national coverage over its century of activity. The CSPWC simultaneously began in Ontario, Canada, and grew into a fully Canadian national organization. Both organizations have become powerful influences for artistic achievement in North America and are now joining forces to present a historic exhibition in 2020.
About Visions Adjoin
Visions Adjoin records a historic milestone for two of the foremost artistic societies in North America. In 2020, the National Watercolor Society in the United States of America celebrates its one-hundredth year while the Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour marks its ninety-fifth year. The leaders of both societies happily agreed to collaborate on an important collaborative juried exhibition of outstanding works by their finest water-media artists. The exhibition entitled VISIONS ADJOIN will be presented first at the NWS Gallery in San Pedro, California, USA, in February of 2020, and later it will appear at the Helson Gallery in Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada. About thirty artists from each society were selected to participate in the joint show. The media allowed in this exhibition include watercolor, watercolor crayon and pencil, gouache, acrylic, watercolor/acrylic felt pen on paper.
