The Annual Members Exhibit (AME) is WAS-H's longest running event and showcases the best-of-the-best from our dedicated members.  This is one of two juried shows we host each year.  While only members can enter paintings in this show, everyone is invited to come and view it during Gallery Hours!

Stanley S. Smith Memorial Supports First, Second and Third Place Awards

WAS-H extends special thank you this year to the estate of longtime WAS-H member, Stanley S. Smith. Stan was a key supporter of WAS-H, and instrumental in designing and building our current "new" building. His continued thoughtful service to WAS-H helped shape who we are as an organization today. Stan was recognized by WAS-H with an honorary membership following the completion of the current building. Those who knew him remember his quick wit and broad smile. We are honored to be remembered by his estate, and thankful for the support to the Annual Members Exhibit.
