WELCOME to the ECWS annual main event in Tampere, Finland

The unique Exhibition will showcase more than 170 carefully juried watercolor paintings from the 14 member societies and almost as many countries.

The Symposium, which has already become a pilgrimage destination for like-minded watercolor enthusiasts from many corners of Europe, will offer you four full days of fun and inspiration.  Besides the opening ceremony, the Symposiums program includes international and Nordic Master Class demonstrations, workshops, plein-air contest & pop-up show, visits to museums / day trip, and collegial events like the Mayor's Reception and sumptuous Gala dinner.

So mark your calendar, dust off you plein-air kit and get ready for the largest watercolor event in the Nordics for years to come!

Looking forward to hosting you,

Johanna Johnsson, President of The Finnish Watercolor Society (FWS)
Pertti Lassila, Event coordinator, former FWS President
