Mission: The Garden State Watercolor Society (GSWS), founded by Dagma Tribble in 1970, is a non-profit volunteer art organization dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of our members. Members 18 years or older, living in or working in the states of NJ, PA, NY and DE may join and take part in exhibiting in our annual art sale and exhibitions. We are geared to varying degrees of talent, artistic abilities and interests. We enlist knowledgeable, talented art judges for our jurors and are proud of the numerous awards given at our lively and interesting rewards receptions, which are open to the public.
Garden State Watercolor Society hosts several watercolor shows a year in the greater NJ area. Their accepted artists range from students to internationally known artists. In 2015, the juried show offered $5000 in awards and cash prizes. Visit their website at gswcs.com.
