The Ruth and Seymour Landfield Atrium & Xcel Energy Gallery
Established in 1985, Red River Watercolor Society (RRWS) is a non-profit, international organization of volunteer artists and art supporters. RRWS’s vision is to provide a diverse selection of water-media and related opportunities for RRWS members and the Red River Valley community, both urban and rural, through guest artist demonstrations/presentations; national and local exhibitions; in-person and online workshops from nationally recognized artists; and urban/rural plein air events.
Each RRWS National Juried Watermedia Exhibition is hosted from June through August. This event is the largest water- media exhibition in a five-state region with artists from around the United States, including area and local artists, and Canada. The National Exhibition provides area residents and tourists an opportunity to experience award-winning works of art in a gallery setting. A four-day workshop is held in concert with the exhibition. Both are led by a nationally-acclaimed juror and instructor, Michael Holter, NWS, OPS, SWS, SWA.
