CALL FOR ART! 2017 Annual Members Show

Deadline for submission: Saturday, August 19

about Annual Members Show…
Each year, we dedicate a non-juried group exhibition to showcasing the artwork of our talented members. Over 200 pieces in a wide range of media are presented salon-style throughout our gallery, creating an exuberant display of color, texture, form and flow. The style of the artwork varies as much as the medium.

The opening reception in itself is a creative salon. Art lovers and exhibiting artists, budding and esteemed, gather to converse, connect and share creative ideas and techniques. For many, WPCA’s Annual Members Show has become a tradition and among their favorite to show work.

you could be chosen to have your own show…
Each year, a juror selects four outstanding artists from the Annual Members Show to exhibit individually in their own Featured Member Exhibition. Each exhibition opens on Gallery Night and runs for about 10 weeks. This year’s juror will soon be announced. Click here for more about Featured Member Exhibition and previous artists and jurors.
