About the New Mexico Watercolor Society

The Society’s History

The New Mexico Watercolor Society (NMWS) was developed after research and planning by Peter Walker. Feeling a real need for this kind of organization, he publicized the initial meeting in the Albuquerque Journal, inviting watercolorists and people interested in watercolor to attend the meeting. His insight and hard work were rewarded with a large turnout. The NMWS is based in Albuquerque, and meets monthly, except July.

NMWS was originally founded May 2, 1969, as a statewide chapter of the Southwestern Watercolor Society of Dallas, Texas. In January 1975, the NMWS became an independent entity. The NM Watercolor Society – Southern Chapter, (a component of NMWS) is based in Las Cruces, NM and serves the state’s southern counties. It was formed in the fall of 2001.
