Dear ECWS members and dear all,

The 17th exhibition and symposium of the European Confederation of Watercolour Societies will be held in Córdoba in October 2014 by initiative of the Agrupación de Acuarelistas de Andalucía.

As coordinator of the ECWS, I thank the Board of the AAA, and the Municipality of the town of Córdoba for giving us this opportunity.

The ECWS (http://ecws.eu/) was launched in 1998 by initiative of the Belgian and the Italian watercolour societies. Today the ECWS is an important network of 13 associations and nearly 5000 painters from Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Iceland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden and it is possible to expand.

I welcome the participating artists and lovers of this suggestive and challenging technique.

Cristina Bracaloni
ECWS Coordinator
