Are you a student, amateur or professional artist working in Watercolor?  We have an open call for entries for our show March 2-26 2016.


Help us celebrate the medium of Watercolor Painting! We encourage submissions of art created in recent years, including student work created by youth and adults.

Eligibility: All original watercolor paintings are welcome; contemporary, traditional, abstract, even two- and three-dimensional pieces. No crafts, kits, or production work. Artwork must be family-friendly.

Submission: Each artist may submit up to three pieces for the show. There is a $2 fee per piece – fees will be used for the prize money for the People’s Choice awards.

Judging: A People’s Choice award will also be offered for 1st, 2nd place, and 1st place in the student category. This will be determined by a vote of visitors, which will be tallied at the end of the exhibit.
