Every year an ECWS International Exhibition is being held  in the different member countries and organized in turn by the confederated societies. In 2016 France organizes the annual exhibition. The objective of the exhibition is to gather artists to promote their works and watercolour in general. The symposium favors exchanges between different European artists. The ECWS exhibitions are of great quality, and their impact on watercolour painting has always been noticeable. On average they receive 8.000 visitors each.

This event will allow many visitors to discover Avignon and its surroundings.
Avignon is both a historic city with its Palace of the Popes and, at the same time, a city where the culture is  present, modern, alive and dynamic. The Avignon Festival is the largest theater festival in the world. The exhibition will take place in  an ancient cloister, a magnificent monument in the heart of the old town : three levels to display our works, a cloister to seek shelter, to relax, and to meet.

During the symposium it will be possible to visit the city of Avignon, discover the ochre quarries in Roussillon and paint together!
