Annual Members Exhibit

The WAS-H Gallery is home to an impressive schedule of water-media shows, with two premier shows, the Annual Members Exhibit each October and the International Exhibition each March. The Annual Members Exhibit is WAS-H's longest running event and is so very special because it showcases the best-of-the-best from our members. Each exhibit is juried by a nationally known artist with cash and merchandise awards totaling over $3000.
