Welcome


The Mahoning Valley Watercolor Society was founded in 1982 by eleven area artists; their goal was to encourage local watercolor painters.


The Society provides watercolorists with a place to share work, to learn more about watercolor technique, and to get information about watercolor-related events in the community.

The MVWS donates to the Ohio Watercolor Society and contributes prize money to local and state shows.


Meetings are held at 7:PM on the second and fourth Mondays of September, October, November, January, February, March, April.The Society meets once a month in May and December. No meetings are held in June, July, and August. See Meeting Schedule for specific dates.

Our next meeting is Monday, September 25th
From 7-9 at Disciples Christian Church, 565, Boardman-Canfield Road, Boardman OH 44512

On Monday the 25th, MVWS member John Schlabaugh will do the first demo of the season, an event we look forward to. John studied art at YSU, and we have come to know his impressive watercolor skills. For his demo, however, John will shake things up! He will do an acrylic pour painting, a technique he likes, so this is a chance for all of us to see a different approach we might all want to try. Don’t miss this evening of art.

We will miss Bob Moyer. Here's his terrific self portrait from the 2016 OWS show at the Riffe Gallery.

Bob Moyer, a member of OWS and true friend to the MVWS, has passed away. Bob was generous with his time and his talent. He enjoyed doing demos and workshops for our group. He always donated a demo painting--sometimes two—that we could raffle as a fund raiser. Because of money raised on one of his paintings, we have the overhead mirror that makes viewing a demo so enjoyable.
