Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Minnesota Watercolor Society is being proactive to protect our members. Our Spring Show "Inclinations" will be a virtual show online on August 1, 2020. Please refer to this website for updates on future meetings and events status. We will also send e-mails to members as needed during this time to confirm upcoming events and/or cancellations. During this time, we wish good health for all of our members, and their families. Thank you, Carol Wingard MNWS President
