FW Media

FW Media, the owners of WetCanvas have filed for bankruptcy and are seeking new owners.

They have not contacted any of the admins or other staff of WC so we have no information other than what is available publicly.


WetCanvas may close or we may not see any difference, we simply don't know at this point.


It might be a good idea to download any images or threads on WetCanvas of yours that you want to keep.

It might also be a good idea to get the contact information, email, Facebook, Instagram or whatever information of anyone you'd like to keep contact with.

I'm sorry the information is so limited. I hope we can continue but if worse comes to worse I want all of you to know what a pleasure it has been for me to meet and get to know so many interesting and good people.

Re: FW Media

Oh no! Just renewing subscriptions to The Artist's Magazine, Watercolor Artist, etc. Maybe it is an attempt to reorganize/restructure and will be better. Dick Blick I can see would be a possible buyer. Keep us informed.

Re: FW Media

I just renewed my subscriptions too. Between my husband and I, we get quite a few.

I'm staying hopeful!

Re: FW Media

Virginia, if worse gets to worse, I sure would like to keep in contact with you and Kay. Perhaps through Facebook which I'm on. Keeping fingers crossed that it all turns out for the good.

Re: FW Media

I've heard from our liaison, the official word is that the company is not shutting down and business is continuing as usual. So yay for that.

Of course with any restructuring there can be changes but for the time being, I think we're good.

Virginia, Sure hope it's true that WC is not shutting down. It sounds like there will be changes but we will have to wait and see. Meanwhile happy to hear something positive here.

Re: FW Media

Thatís good news!
Lil and I are already long time members of a free site Painting Friends, that was begun as a watercolor forum and now has morphed into a much larger, more varied place. Several years ago we all chipped in to upgrade it.
