This invitational exhibition, hosted every four years by the Springfield Art Museum, will feature work by current members of the Watercolor U.S.A. Honor Society. WHS is an independently governed, not-for-profit organization formed in 1985 from a broad-based assemblage of inventive artists whose paintings had won awards in Watercolor U.S.A. or who had served as jurors to the exhibition. The mission of WHS is to focus national attention on the Springfield Art Museum as a repository for conserving, preserving, and collecting watercolor painting. The work presented in this exhibition represents the focus of the contemporary watermedia artists that comprise the diverse membership of WHS.
