It’s time for one of the best celebrations of art and local talent at WPCA all year!

Join us as we unveil this year’s members show on Friday, September 4. The Annual Members Show is non-juried and dedicated to showcasing the artwork of our vastly talented artist members. Over 200 pieces in a wide range of media are presented salon-style throughout the 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 artists, WPCA’s Annual Members Show has become a tradition and one their favorites to show artwork. Art collectors and those who are looking for original artwork to brighten and add character to their space will find artwork in a various price range, from the cost of lunch to a vacation.

Art Talk and Special Receptions. In conjunction to the celebration of art and artists, we will be hosting two ‘art talks’, on September 10 and 24. Topics will revolve around artist entrepreneurship and resources.

2015-16 Featured Members Artists. Each year, a juror selects four outstanding artists based on their artwork in the Annual Members Show – each awarded a solo Featured Member Exhibition. Each exhibition opens on Gallery Night and runs for approximately 10 weeks. We are honored to have artists and educator Josie Osborne as this year’s juror. The four artists selected will be announced during the opening reception on September 4. The 2014-15 Featured Member Artists were Gary John Gresl, Kevin Giese, Nova Czarnecki and Kevin Wrencher.

Audience Favorite. Gallery attendees are welcome to vote for their single favorite piece of artwork in the Annual Members Show. The audience favorite will win a prize package that includes memberships and gift certificates. Additionally, one voter will be randomly drawn to receive prizes as well.
