Annual Exhibition Awards Fund   

Your donation to this fund helps to pay for Award money given to artists for their outstanding achievements in watercolor.  Donating to this fund increases the chances of more artists entering their very best painting and making it available for the NWS permanent collection as a Purchase Award.
