Artists’ Reception Thursday, November 15th from 5:30 – 7:30 pm

The Florida Watercolor Society, now in its 47th year, is one of the largest and most prestigious organizations of its kind in the country.  Each year, about 600 artists submit their work hoping to be among the 100 artists selected for the FWS Annual Exhibition.  This year, judge Tom Schaller had his work cut out for him!  The FWS 47th Annual Exhibition is currently on exhibit at ArtCenter Manatee in Bradenton from September 7th through October 26th.  About 40 of the paintings will travel onto two additional venues, and the Elliott Museum is proud to once again host the first stop for the FWS Traveling Show!

But Wait!  There’s MORE!  For the duration of the FWS Traveling Show, the Elliott’s own Robin Lee Makowski will do a watercolor demonstration in the gallery most Tuesdays* from 1-3 pm.   Additionally, one of this year’s FWS Award Winners, Pat Dews, will demonstrate her techniques on Saturday, December 15th from 1-3 pm in advance of her two-day workshop, Abstracting Nature, on Saturday & Sunday, January 26th & 27th, 2019.  Workshop registration, fees, and other information available soon.

The exhibition and demos are included with regular admission; Museum Members free.

*No demos on November 20th, December 25th, or January 1st
