Watercolor society donates to local charities
For the last few months, the Delaware Watercolor Society has collected clothing for the Community Resource Center in Rehoboth Beach. The center is run under the auspices of the Lewes-Rehoboth Association of Churches to help Sussex County residents in need. DWS members, under the leadership of Dianne Shearon, have donated gently used coats, gloves, scarves, hats, and new socks for children and adults.
“You never know how far a small act of kindness can reach,” says DWS President Elizabeth Collard, “but we understand that everything we’ve provided has been very useful.”
At their annual holiday party and luncheon, DWS members donated additional items for the clothing drive and collected food items for the local food bank. “It’s the least we can do, especially at this time of year,” says Vice President Isabel Pizzolato.

DWS is a regional society that promotes and encourages mutually shared interests in watercolor media among its members and the public. The society works toward fostering high-quality, professional art and creative contributions to the Delaware community through educational events, exhibitions, and other activities. The society has fine art exhibitions throughout the year, and as part of its continuing outreach, DWS frequently requests donations of canned goods from the participants or those attending the exhibitions.
