WFWS44 (2019) Accepted Entries from UWS Artists



The Utah Watercolor Society (UWS) is a Member of the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies (WFWS). This allows our UWS members to enter the annual WFWS exhibition.

WFWS History

The New Mexico Watercolor Society formed the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies (WFWS) some 30 years ago, through the foresight and work of Dr. David Gale (1915-1980).  Today, the Federation includes over 4,500 artists in ten regional societies:

Arizona Watercolor Association
Colorado Watercolor Society
Idaho Watercolor Society
New Mexico Watercolor Society
San Diego Watercolor Society
Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild
Southwestern Watercolor Society
Utah Watercolor Society
Watercolor Society of Oregon
West Texas Watercolor Society

The Federation encourages and recognizes artistic excellence through annual exhibitions.  The yearly exhibition and delegates meeting is hosted by a regional member society on a rotating basis.  Each society pays annual dues to the hosting society to help defray expenses of the show.  Societies also use entry fees, fund raisers, solicitation of donations, grants, or a portion individual society monies to cover costs.  The expenses for these exhibits include such items as fees for a nationally recognized artist to jury the show, awards for winners, publication of a catalog of accepted paintings, publicity, refreshments for the reception, etc.
