Welcome to the
New Mexico Watercolor Society Website

The purpose of the New Mexico Watercolor Society is the elevation of the stature of watercolor as an art medium and the education of the public as to the significance of watercolor as an important creative permanent painting medium. The ultimate goal is to make New Mexico known nationally for its watercolorists.

All individuals interested in watercolor media are invited to join the NM Watercolor Society and participate in our regularly scheduled educational and social events.

Meetings are held monthly (except August) and include interesting and stimulating painting-related speakers. There is a social preceeding the meeting where artists can chat and become acquainted with other members.

NMWS members are also eligible to enter the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies’ annual show (juried exhibition drawn from 11 western states/regions.
