Utah Watercolor Society is an organization which was founded in 1974 to “elevate watercolor and educate the public of the importance of watercolor as a creative, permanent art medium.” The society encourages its members to develop artistically and creatively and to share ideas and techniques with one another while providing opportunities for exposure of their art in exhibitions. In order to expand its horizons, the society has joined with the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, an organization with societies in ten western states sharing the same goals and mission.
Each year the Utah Watercolor Society sponsors a competition juried by nationally recognized watercolorists. From the show a selection of works are curated for the Utah Arts Council’s Traveling Exhibition Program.
