The Fraser Valley Watermedia Society (FVWS) hosts its annual spring show as an online event throughout May.

The show will feature a wide range of new watermedia paintings by local artists, including works done in acrylic, watercolour, mixed media, and pen and wash.

All works will be available for purchase by sending a request to the FVWS using the “contact us” page on the website fvwatermediasociety.com or by email at fvwatermediasociety@gmail.com.

The show opens May 1 at fvwatermediasociety.com/shows

FVWS is a group of around 30 artists who in pre-COVID times met weekly for meetings, workshops, and other events.

They have presented annual art shows at the Clearbrook Library for more than 25 years, but are holding the virtual show this year due to COVID restrictions.

The society has also held exhibitions of their work at The Reach Gallery Museum and the Kariton Art Gallery.

During the pandemic, members have been working online and posting artwork on the society website and Facebook page.
