    More About Monthly Gallery Exhibits

    The Watercolor Art Society - Houston promotes the love of water-media art through classes and exhibits throughout the year. Each month we host a new exhibit where members and the public can drop in to see the most recent show.  Some participants also elect to participate in our online gallery as well.

    We have three tiers of exhibits. 

    1. Our top tier International Watercolor Exhibit (March) and Annual Members Exhibit (October) are both juried shows, where artists must present their work to a juror who determines if their work is worthy of entry. This occurs prior to the judging and awarding of prizes. 

    2. WAS-H also hosts eight members-only Monthly Exhibits that are non-juried but with cash prizes and honorable mention ribbons awarded. 

    3. The third show is a non-juried Student Show (July) in which artists may submit work done under the supervision of an instructor. This show is to encourage beginning artists to fully experience the exhibit process, show their progress in painting under the supervision of an instructor, and to compete for prizes with artists of similar experience and expertise. Once an artist wins a prize in this or our other shows, they are ineligible to continue entering our student shows.
