Arizona Watercolor Association
The Arizona Watercolor Association (the AWA) was founded in 1960 by professional watercolor artists and instructors. The AWA is growing in stature and membership. It hosts a National Watercolor Exhibition, and two Membership Exhibitions, all juried by nationally acclaimed artists. Fueled by the energy of enthusiastic members, the AWA is actively elevating the Fine Art of Watercolors to new heights. The AWA is affiliated with the Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and the Arts Council of Phoenix. A nonprofit organization, the Association has become a major influence throughout Arizona. Membership extends across and beyond state boundaries. Many in the AWA are signature members of the prestigious American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society.
