The Cazenovia Watercolor Society was formed in 1980 for the purpose of establishing a working group of area artists interested in learning more about he medium of watercolor and improving their individual skills.  Monthly meetings were held September to June.  At the meetings members work would be reviewed and critiqued by Professor Sylvia Wyckoff or a guest art critic. Demonstrations by regional watercolorists, movies and slides were devoted to watercolor.  A multi-day workshop by a well-known artist was held each year .  Exhibitions of members work were held in local businesses.  Everyone is welcome!  As the early historical information indicated, "We have a "colorful" future!"
