The Rhode Island Watercolor Society is proud to support watercolor and other traditional watermedia materials and methods.

As the options for art making expand, so must the horizons of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society guidelines for our open juried shows.

    Work may be floated within the frame, or presented with a single or double mat. 

    White or off white mats are preferred, but liner mats less than 3/8" may be colored. Entirely colored mats are acceptable only if they are integral in the completion of the artwork.

    The Rhode Island Watercolor Society reserves the right to exclude from the exhibition any works that do not arrive in sturdy condition, or are deemed too fragile to be successfully exhibited.
