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. 


It’s not too early to be thinking about the 49th Annual Member Exhibit (AME) on October 7th 2018!

Internationally renowned artist Carl Dalio will be the juror and presenter for this year’s AME. He is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society and has authored numerous published articles and books.
