JOIN OWS



Membership in the Ohio Watercolor Society is open to all residents of Ohio and to those in neighboring states (PA, WV, KY, IN and MI) who are members of an Ohio-based art organization or business.

The OWS is fortunate to have not only a diverse range of talented artists as members, but also a fellowship—in the broadest sense—that is committed to fostering the mission of the Society. The participation of our Members is strongly encouraged to ensure the success of the exhibitions, workshops and other educational and outreach activities for which OWS is known.
