Iowa Watercolor Society Traveling Exhibit

The Iowa Watercolor Society (IWS) is an organization with over 170 members that are beginning, amateur and professional artists.  The organization offers the opportunity for watercolorists of all skill levels to network with artists statewide.  The only requirement for membership is an interest in watercolor painting.  IWS was organized in 1977 by a group of devoted artists that loved watercolor painting.  They were led by Joe Messner of Cedar Rapids.  Each year the organization sponsors an annual meeting, a juried exhibition, a luncheon with an award ceremony and workshops.  The organization’s primary purpose is to promote and support the arts in Iowa with an emphasis on watercolor painting.
