ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL OPEN EXHIBITION

The most notable juried exhibition sponsored by the NWWS is the Annual International Open Exhibition. Painters in water media, including watercolor, acrylic, gouache, and egg tempera are eligible to enter. The exhibition has grown tremendously in size and reputation since its inception in 1940, with annual awards totaling over $10,000. It attracts talented painters from across the US and internationally. The full color catalog produced to accompany the exhibit showcases an entire range of water-based media being created by the contemporary artists who are juried into the exhibition.
