The Miami Watercolor Society has been in existence since 1974 with a membership of around 130, mostly locals but also including “snowbirds”. MWS is a volunteer-based, culturally diverse, non-profit organization. Members include students, amateurs and professionals, some of whom also teach at various sites around the county, including private studios, and public and private schools. Many members are also members of the Florida and National Watercolor Societies. Having varying styles and using watercolors to create many forms of watermedia, many MWS members have won a myriad of awards for their work.
In addition to monthly meetings at the Pinecrest community center (2nd Sunday of each month), where painting demonstrations are usually a part of the agenda, the Society holds workshops throughout the year, led by noted artists from around the country.
Two events of interest are the annual Teacher Workshop held at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, a watercolor workshop for Dade County Art Teachers in September, and, the “Annual Impressions in Watercolor”, a juried art show for students of all ages in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, in February.
MWS also has 2 juried membership shows each year, Fall and Spring. They take place in different venues around Dade County. This fall’s exhibit will be held at Artspace MAGQ, a modern gallery, yet intimate venue, in the Falls district. The MWS Fall Exhibit will be featured in the November Falls District Gallery Walk.
