Welcome to
 The Central New York
    Watercolor Society


                  Our History          

     The Central New York Watercolor Society was formed in February 1982 with fourteen charter members from the central New York State region. The Society was organized with the assistance of Mario Cooper and his wife, Dale Meyers, both past presidents of the American Watercolor Society, as well as Clarence Say, and Dan Meyers, past presidents of the Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society.

         The first President of  CNYWS was Willard J. Sauter of Utica, N.Y.

CNYWS members encourage the study of watercolor, and foster awareness and appreciation

of watercolor and water media, through regularly scheduled exhibits and educational opportunities.






Best Wishes for a Creative 2023!

"Success in watercolor results from the partnership between artist and medium;

finding a balance within the knowledge, technique, and skill of the painter;

and leaving room for the magic that makes watercolor so distinctive."

Mick McAndrews
