The next regional exhibit for the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies will take place in June and July of 2020. This exhibit will feature 100 of the best watercolor paintings from about 1000 entries from artists in ten watercolor societies representing nine western states. In recent years, the Idaho Watercolor Society has been well represented in the exhibit, with nine artists selected for last year’s show in San Diego of which two were award winners!

The prospectus for the 2020 exhibit has been released and is posted on this website. Entries for 2020 are due to your local delegate by January 10, 2020. With six months to plan and paint, you have plenty of time to execute your best work for entry. All the details concerning eligibility and art work requirements are contained in the prospectus, so please read it carefully. For IWS members, your local delegate is Dennis Hayzlett (dchayzlett@gmail.com or 208-514-3862). If after reading the prospectus you have questions, please contact Dennis by email or by phone.

So start visualizing your ideas and plan to meet the January 10th deadline with your best work. It is an exciting opportunity to take part in a major, regional show here in our home state.
