Watercolor Exhibit to Open at Branigan
The New Mexico Watercolor Society was founded as a statewide chapter of the Southwestern Watercolor Society of Dallas, Texas in 1969. In 1975, the NMWS became an independent entity. Founded in 2001, the Southern Chapter is located in Las Cruces and serves the state’s southern counties.
The New Mexico Watercolor Society promotes watercolor as an art medium and educates the public as to the significance of watercolor as an important painting medium. Its goal is to make New Mexico known nationally for its watercolorists.
