The Watercolour Society of Wales was established in 1959 when 6 like-minded artists met to form a society to promote watercolour painting in wales, a tradtion which goes back to the late 18th century.
To date the Society has around 40 members coming from all walks of life, many being professional artists, but all are talented painters living and working in Wales.
The Society’s exhibitions are always varied in style, colourful, and stimulating, depicting the beauty of the landscape and life of Wales and beyond, from the traditional to modern in style. Traditional watercolour now stands alongside new media like acrylics and mixed media in the society exhibitions.
Today the Society holds exhibitions at galleries across Wales including The Royal Cambrian Academy Conwy, St.David’s Hall Cardiff, The Museum of Modern Art Machynlleth, The Taliesin at University College Swansea, The Glyn Vivian Gallery in Swansea and The National Library of Wales.
In 2006 the Society was honoured when HRH The Prince of Wales agreed to become its Patron, having exhibited with the Society over a number of years.
