ECWS – Haapsalu 2019

Dear collegues, ECWS members,
this year the exhibition and symposium of the ECWS will be
held the 22nd time. Once again, one of Europe`s cities will be
crowned with a title of watercolour capital. Once again we
meet with watercolour, the most charming painting technique ,
where the combination of water and colour
captures both the artist as well as the observer.

Watercolour has become a binding ground for thousands of
artists, whose activities and joy of painting will be shared
on the ECWS joint exhibition. Today European Confederation of
Watercolour Societies joins watercolourists from 14
countries – association with this range of diverse artists of
different cultural backgrounds enriches us all mutually on
emotional and spiritual level.
The starting points of the watercolourists`  self-expression
vary, but all artists are bound by a personal approach and
aspiration for balanced harmony.
As the President of Estonian Watercolour Society I am glad
to welcome you in Estonia to celebrate another grand ECWS event.
Haapsalu has a rich cultural background and we are honoured that
for the very first time this big event will take place here.
I wish it will be  a memorable event for us, artists, the city
of Haapsalu and to all our guests.

Welcome to Haapsalu in 2019 !
Anneliis Vabul
