Hawai'i Watercolor Society: 2021 Open Show is Open Online!
It's time to celebrate our 2021 Open Show! Thank you to all who entered. Whether your work was selected or not, it takes all of our participation and the work of many volunteers to put together our exhibitions. The show is now viewable online at https://www.hawaiiwatercolorsociety.org/shop-the-2021-open-show. Please share this link with friends and family near and far. You can view the work in person at the Downtown Art Center gallery starting Tuesday, August 31, noon-6pm. The show will be up through September 18.

In his memory, a Best in Show award is given at the biannual Hawaii Watercolor Society's shows.
