2021 - 2022 Iowa Watercolor Society Traveling Show

Who we are​

The Iowa Watercolor Society was organized in 1977 by a small group of enthusiastic watercolorists. 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 various substrates. 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

  • Spring and Fall Watercolor Workshops 

  • Members Show

  • Plein Air Activities throughout the year
