The Watercolor Society of North Carolina, Inc. is a professional nonprofit art organization.  The purpose of WSNC is to strengthen and promote watercolor throughout the state.  WSNC strives to do this by: elevating the standards of excellence in the medium, educating artists by hosting workshops by nationally recognized artists, sponsoring juried exhibitions, and involving the people of North Carolina in the arts.

The organization of the Watercolor Society began in 1972, when A. Stuffer Myers began establishing contacts and held the charter meeting.  Beginning with 18 charter members, the society now has a membership of nearly 500.  Their activities are supervised by a Board of Directors.  WSNC invites anyone interested in the arts to support WSNC by becoming a member today.
