Thanks to Sponsors and Donors

The Tennessee Watercolor Society is a nonprofit organization and could not fulfill its mission without the support of sponsors, patron donors and our own TnWS members.

In particular, the staging of our Biennial Exhibitions and their associated cash awards rely heavily on the generosity of businesses, individuals and organizations located where exhibitions are held. Recent award purses have exceeded $14,000 in cash and merchandise. All sponsors receive recognition in a full-color catalog published for each Biennial Exhibition; and for both our Biennial and Online Exhibitions, donors and sponsors are credited on our official website when winners are announced.

Minimum stand-alone cash awards start at $250, however, smaller amounts are often combined to make up larger cash awards. Please consider donating today.
