Hawai`i Watercolor Society


The Hawai`i Watercolor Society was founded in 1962 by Hawai`i Artist Hon Chew Hee. Our aim as an organization is to nurture and stimulate interest in water media through education, exhibits, and collaboration with other organizations, associations and individuals.

The Hawai`i Watercolor Society sponsors two juried exhibits every year as well as a biennial curated show highlighting the work of our signature members. In addition, we host periodic sales, themed shows and community events.

In conjunction with our exhibits we offer two week long workshops each year featuring nationally recognized teaching artists. On an intermittent basis we sponsor shorter duration workshops on a variety of art-related topics.


The Hawai`i Watercolor Society sponsors several shows each year and strives to present water media as a vital, enduring and expressive medium through education and exhibition. The juried Member's Show, the fall Open Show and other shows are usually held in the spring or summer, fall, and the holiday season. Past show images here.
