Watercolor Club Elevates to Watercolor Society

Press Release by Norm Freyer


CWS LogoAt the March meeting of the Citrus Watercolor Club, the membership overwhelmingly voted to change the name of the organization to the Citrus Watercolor Society, Inc. When the founders of the Citrus Watercolor Club formed the organization in 1981 with a dozen or so members, they did not foresee that it would grow in numbers to a size now approaching 150 members. Nor did they foresee that the group would encompass an area beyond Citrus County. It has grown from a local club to a regional society.  Current membership now includes members from the counties of Citrus, Hernando, Levy, Marion, Alachua and Lake. In addition, the organization has spawned a number of Signature Members of the Florida State organization, the Florida Watercolor Society (FWS). One of these local members is the current President of the FWS. The CWS provides educational demonstration and workshop programs featuring nationally known artists at the regular monthly sessions. The society holds two public shows and sales annually – one in the Spring, the other in the Fall. Both are held at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs State Wildlife Park. So, as a regional organization in the Nature Coast area, the Citrus Watercolor Society (CWS) now joins the other six regional watercolor societies in the State of Florida. Helene Lancaster, the President of the CWS says that, “Citrus Watercolor is now a Society! We love to be inspired by fellow painters, and our most important goal is to bring artists together! You are a part of that. In fact, you are all of that!”  Regarding the CWS objective she says that, “It remains the same – Promoting the art of watercolor and the artist since 1981”.  The Citrus Watercolor Society will continue to hold monthly meetings and demonstrations at the First Christian Church of Inverness, 2018 Colonade Street, Inverness, FL. The mailing address is Citrus Watercolor Society, PO Box 2462, Inverness, FL 34451-2464. We invite everyone to visit our web site at www.citruswatercolorsociety.org
