One of the important *benefits* of Membership in the New Mexico Watercolor Society is the opportunity to exhibit your work in

NMWS members-only specific exhibitions.

 A. NMWS Exhibitions

New Mexico Watercolor Society Members, Active and Signature, are invited to participate in our two annual shows, the Spring and Fall Exhibitions, by submitting watercolor works for selection by our Guest Juror, who also serves as the Guest Artist for our Spring and Fall Workshops. These Workshops and Exhibitions are held in Albuquerque, NM, typically at the Fine Arts Gallery at EXPO-NM (State Fairgrounds).
