American Watercolor Society

 Traveling Exhibition

(Celebrating 150th Anniversary)

  Opening Reception:  Friday, May 12th from 6:00 – 9:00pm

            Exhibition dates: May 12th – July 15th

 The American Watercolor Society, based in New York City, is one of the oldest and most prestigious art societies in the world. Indeed, election to the Society as a Signature Member is one of the most sought-after honors in the painting world. AWS Membership comprises many of the greatest names in painting throughout the Society's history and includes (to name drop a few) the American impressionist Childe Hassam, regionalists Edward Hopper and Charles Burchfield, plus virtually every member of the important “California School” of watercolorists, and everyone in between, up to and including the late Andrew Wyeth.

AWS annual Exhibition is one of the world’s most revered watercolor exhibits. More than 1,200 artists from throughout the United States and 27 foreign countries submit their work to a panel of jurors chosen from Signature Members of the AWS. Of these submissions, 150 paintings are selected for the exhibition. Forty paintings from the show are selected for the Traveling Exhibition, which tours museums and galleries across the country during the next year.

Ambleside Gallery is honored to have been selected to be one out of only four venues in the country to host this year’s Traveling Exhibition.
