WESTERN FEDERATION OF WATERCOLOR SOCIETIES The Western Federation of Watercolor Societies (WFWS) was formed 39 years ago through the foresight and work of Dr. David Gale (1915 - 1980) of the New Mexico Watercolor Society. Today, the WFWS includes over 4,500 artists in eleven regional watercolor societies and guilds. The WFWS encourages and recognizes artistic excellence and works to increase visibility of watercolor as an artistic medium through our annual exhibitions.

2015 WFWS JUROR The juror for the 40th  Annual WFWS Exhibition is Linda Baker, AWS NWS, a professional watercolor artist whose work presents a contemporary approach to traditional subjects. 


The Western Federation of Watercolor Exhibition is open to the general public from April 16, 2015 to July 16, 2015.
