Open Water 2022

The Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour (CSPWC) recognizes, encourages and nurtures excellence of work in the medium of watercolour. To this end, it plans and holds seminars as well as open competition exhibitions in order to discover and appreciate the work of watercolour artists. It also provides a common forum for those who express their creativity in this demanding medium.

The Canadian Society of Painters in Water Colour was founded in 1925, by Canadian standards a historic society, a part of the Canadian identity. Our membership includes not only Canadians from coast to coast but also artists far from our shores. Our founders had a dramatic influence on the evolution of Canadian art. They include F.H. Brigden, A.J. Casson, Franklin Carmichael and C.W. Jefferys. Their stated aim was “To recognize, encourage, and nurture excellence of work in the watercolour medium”.
