Monthly Gallery Exhibit

Monthly Gallery Exhibits are featured at WAS-H's own gallery space each month of the year except March and October when the Annual International Exhibition and Annual Members Exhibit are shown. The Monthly Gallery Exhibits are juried by a local artist, and cash awards are presented to First, Second and Third Places with ribbons going to Honorable Mentions. Members have an opportunity to submit work in water-media, offering the community opportunity to view and purchase contemporary art.
