Annual Exhibition 

Who we are​

The Iowa Watercolor Society was organized in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic water colorists. Which means...we are 43 years old this year! IWS now celebrates well over 150 members and offers the opportunity for interested painters to network with artists statewide.


Each fall, the IWS sponsors an annual luncheon, award ceremony, and workshop. This is a juried exhibition with monetary awards. The IWS accepts entries in water media on watercolor paper. From this exhibit, a traveling show is created and provides outreach around the state.


The well-attended and fun-filled three-day workshops held three days prior to and three days following the annual meeting, are taught by nationally and internationally recognized teachers.

Events we host:

  • Annual juried exhibition

  • Watercolor workshops in the spring and fall

  • Two miniature shows a year

  • Plein air activities throughout the year
