A Fluid Tradition

Northwest Watercolor Society...the First 75 Years

During 2014-2015, Northwest Watercolor Society celebrates its 75th anniversary. The society has attracted many of the most accomplished regional watercolorists as members and exhibitors, and is one of the earliest and most successful continuing arts organizations in the history of Washington State. A Fluid Tradition: Northwest Watercolor Society . . . The First 75 Years – richly illustrated with color reproductions and artist biographies – reestablishes the reputations of many early society members while giving a glimpse of rare works by some of today's leading regional artists.

The annuals for the society were sponsored by the Seattle Art Museum for over thirty years and many members were honored with solo exhibitions at the museum during that time. As Seattle grew, several members created many of the region's most iconic cultural images.

Northwest Watercolor Society continues to be a leading force in national watercolor competitions. This book is the first in-depth account of its important historic contributions to regional and national culture.
