We thank all of the wonderful artists who submitted paintings for 2018 and whose participation continues to be the foundation of NWWS and the bedrock on which the NWWS exhibitions stand. Too, our sponsors contribute mightily toward our success and their generosity is greatly appreciated by NWWS and by the artists who receive awards that would not be possible without our patrons. Thank you so very much!

We also express our gratitude to our 2018 juror, Mark Mehaffey, who was a delight to have with us as a distinguished juror, an excellent workshop instructor, and a fellow artist. Thank you, Mark, for your contributions from beginning to end.
