Each year, Valley Watercolor Society holds an Annual Juried Exhibit with rotating judges over the years.

In 2019 our Annual Juried Exhibit will be held from Tuesday, March 5 to Saturday, March 30, 2019, at:

Tarzana, CA 91356
Hours: Tuesday through Saturday: 11 A.M. to 5 P.M.

This year’s Juror will be Joseph Stoddard whose work has been especially revered by those who know Pasadena. In 2001, “Pasadena Sketchbook” was published, followed by a second edition in 2008. “Redlands Sketchbook” was published in 2007 and “Expressive Color”, a Walter Foster Publishing instruction book appeared in 2008. His work is in the permanent collection of Azusa Pacific University, the Pasadena Museum of History, countless homes and offices and has been featured in many publications here and abroad.
