Fred Leach was a member of the " The American Watercolor Society". There's no date, but he was awarded the Dolphin Fellowship in 1980.He would have added the DF after the AWS on his signature. So this was probably painted before 1980, either the late 60's to 70's. 20 1/4" x 10 1/4" x 3/4 Framed. As displayed 19 5/8" x 9 5/8".

Fred Leach AWS DF / American Watercolor Society /Dolphin Fellowship. Fred Leach, a fantastic watercolor artist from Avon, Ohio, lived from 1924 to 2006. He was elected as a lifetime member of the American Watercolor Society in 1964 and he was awarded the Dolphin Fellowship in 1980.The American Watercolor Society is a nonprofit membership organization that began in 1866 to promote the art of watercolor painting in America. Each year the Society holds a juried exhibition of watercolors from artists throughout the world. The Dolphin Fellowship has been established to encourage artists to create more award-winning paintings and for the advancement of the art of watercolor. The AWS had come of age, and we feel this fellowship will add new luster to the American Watercolor Society.
Unlike some fellowships where candidates have to be sponsored by other Fellows to achieve membership, membership in the Dolphin Fellowship is obtained by merit alone in accordance with the point system. The points required to be a Fellow are five and must be won by AWS members at one or more of our national annual exhibitions. Frederick Leach (from an artist supplied vitae)(1924 - 2007).
