PVW, based in the Maryland/
Virginia/D.C. area, is a juried society of watercolor painters
We are a nonprofit organization that seeks to promote the art and excellence of watercolor painting. Our members include many watercolor instructors who teach at all levels, and artists who exhibit at prominent galleries, museums and in nationally acclaimed shows. Some serve as jurors; others give demonstrations and programs for art and community groups.

PVW is delighted to announce the release of our first book!

May 2014 Featured Artist: Ginger Sanaie

Ginger says, "Born in Washington, D.C., I have lived in the D.C. region my entire life. So it's no surprise that my subject matter is often local landscapes.  Other favorite subjects are horses, birds, and the human figure.  I have traveled around the globe, and I have found inspiration everywhere I look.
"I am a former high school teacher, and for many years I worked as an attorney in the public sector. Currently, I maintain a studio in my home in McLean VA, where I focus on creating my own art. I am an active member of several local art organizations.
"Sometimes I work in a realistic manner, and sometimes I work more abstractly. Either way, I am always experimenting. For me, that's where the fun is."
