The International Watermedia Exhibition (IWE) is Houston's premier watermedia-specific event. A once a year phenomenon, the IWE showcases the finest watermedia artists from around the world to address new and edgy techniques and create a global conversation. During the month of March, participating artists receive maximum exposure at our juried, month-long exhibit and have an opportunity to win generous awards from our sponsors. Located in the heart of the Museum District, WAS-H is accessible and a must-see while touring Houston's fine art establishments.
