From our exhibit chairs:

Here is an to spread your wings and exhibit something a bit different.  We’re bending the exhibit guidelines so if you’ve always wanted to enter something with a colored mat (mine will be black), paint on watercolor canvas or Yupo, add a bit of collage, maybe some stitchery, or do something big and abstract, here’s your chance. We haven’t settled on a theme yet, but it will be something that reflects thinking outside the box. Flowers, still life, landscape, birds and sailboats will still be accepted, of course, but if you’ve always wanted to go beyond the ordinary, here’s your chance.

that spring excites in the soul.

The exhibit will be on view from May 6 to June 15 We have room for 50 framed paintings (two per artist), with a maximum frame width of 36 inches. There are also bins available for three unframed works per person, either giclée or original, matted, backed and enclosed in plastic sleeves.

The Wimsey Cove commission is 25%. If you wish to have your paintings for this exhibit framed by the expert Wimsey Cove staff, they’re offering us a special 50% discount. Your AWC dues must be current to enter. See below for Show Standards.

For each of your entries for all AWC exhibits, please attach a label to the back giving title, medium, price, and your name, address, phone number, email (and website if you have one).

In order to publicize this event, we will include a digital image of one of the paintings in our email announcement. If you would like your painting to be considered, please forward a .jpeg image to stacyjoy21117@gmail.com.

Also, out of fairness and respect for the venues that permit us to exhibit in their gallery or place of business, if you should sell a painting as a result of someone seeing it at that exhibit, please charge the same amount and give that venue the commission they would normally charge.


"As Artists, this will be our reply to violence, hatred and division: That we will make our art more intensely, more beautifully and more devotedly than ever before."

Leonard Bernstein, Berlin, 1989
