The Kentucky Watercolor Society was founded in 1977 to
promote the art of watercolor painting in Kentucky. Through
education and exhibitions, it serves artists, collectors, and
others who enjoy fine art. The KWS is a nationally recognized
nonprofit organization.

The KWS has a gallery located at 4836 Brownsboro Center
Arcade, Louisville, Kentucky 40207. Members have the
opportunity to join the gallery and display their art.

KWS holds two major exhibitions per year: the AquaVenture
Exhibition and the Aqueous USA National Exhibition. Both are
open to all artists who paint in watercolor or watermedia.
Many leading artists from around the country have
participated in Aqueous.

Newsletters inform members of shows and activities, as well
as providing tips, techniques, and hints for improving creative
art. KWS sponsors workshops, classes for adults and youth
and demonstrations throughout the year.
