Event Description

Western Ontario Regional Water-Media Juried Show

The Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC) is pleased to present the Western Ontario Regional Water-Media Juried Show, featuring paintings by CSPWC elected members and associates. This exhibit showcases the breadth of talent of Western Ontario and provides artists with a unique opportunity to share their work with a larger audience. The show title “renewal” seemed like the perfect fit for our first in-person exhibition following the challenges of the past two years.

We invite you to enjoy this show that features 41 original watercolour paintings. Don’t forget to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award.

Thank you for all in the Western Ontario Region who have submitted paintings and a special thank you for all the volunteers who have made this show possible.

Find it on the second floor of RBG Centre (stairs and elevator available near the Greenhouse Café)

The show will be available online through CSPWC after June 12 for your viewing pleasure.
