The Annual Exhibition is one of the highlights of the Society’s annual Convention from September 23 – 26 at the Ft. Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel and Convention Center.  

Internationally renowned watercolorist Keiko Tanabe juried this year’s event, which received 491 Exhibition entries.

“I am deeply honored to be a juror in such an important milestone year for the Florida Watercolor Society and delighted to present a strong show,” said Tanabe. “I also find this show unique in that there were many artists who responded, directly or indirectly, to what Florida, as an environment, offers.  The artists transformed its influence into many forms of creative expression and spirit.”

With nearly 1,000 members, FWS is one of the largest state-based watercolor societies in the U.S. Membership is open to all water media artists who are Florida residents.
