We are a regional group of watercolor professional and enthusiasts, originally formed in 1954 and currently have a membership in excess of 50. The mission of SWS is to foster the development and growth of artist in the medium of watercolor and to promote watercolor art.

We hold monthly meetings, competitions, workshops, exhibitions and one annual fundraiser. Our monthly meetings include demonstrations, speakers, professional or member critiques, plein air painting and seasonal celebrations.
