At the Water Color’s Edge

President’s Message, by Betsy Moritz

I can’t believe it’s fall and approaching winter already, and another wonderful year of watercolor painting is coming to a close. Hopefully, all of you have had opportunities to paint this summer, and are preparing your entries for the Texas Watercolor Society’s 70th anniversary exhibition in 2019.

Call for entries will start in February 2019 andmore information will be made available.

Our 70th year celebration will be spectacular with our judge Carol Carter ( from St. Louis, Missouri . She will judge the show on May 28 at the Kelso Art Center of the University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio. We will also have our annual membership meeting on May 28 followed by a demonstration by Ms. Carter. I encourage you also to take advantage of the workshop to be given by Carol on May 29, 30, and 31, also in San Antonio.

Our Workshop Committee is ready to take your deposit for the workshop as spaces are limited. For information contact or (830) 336-3638.

As a non-profit organization, the TWS welcomes donations to support awards and other activities. Donations are generally tax deductible. All donations to further the art of watercolor are welcome, and inquiries can be addressed to Awards Chair Mary Quiros at or (956) 286-8912.
