The Iowa Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibition is returning to the Muscatine Art Center and is on view from June 8 through July 30, 2023.
The Iowa Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibition is returning to the Muscatine Art Center where the exhibition was most recently on view in 2019. This year's exhibition features the work of thirty Iowa watercolor artists, and judges have awarded first through fifth place winners along with Honorable Mentions and a winner for the Transparent category.
The Iowa Watercolor Society was organized in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic watercolorists. IWS now celebrates well over 150 members and offers the opportunity for interested painters to network with artists statewide. Each fall, the IWS sponsors an annual luncheon, award ceremony, and workshop. This is a juried exhibition with monetary awards. The IWS accepts entries in water media on various substrates. From this exhibit a traveling show is created that provides outreach around the state.
