The AWS Annual International Exhibition is one of the premiere watercolor exhibits in the world. This year, nearly 1,000 artists from throughout the United States and 27 foreign countries submitted their work to a panel of jurors chosen from Signature Members of the AWS. From these submissions (one per artist), the exhibition paintings are selected. Paintings from the show will also be selected for the Traveling Exhibition, which will tour museums and galleries across the country during the next year.
