2020 Annual Members Exhibition- CALL FOR ENTRY

March 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am - March 14, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

Leslie Edward Humez, Gluttony, Mixed media, 2019 Annual Members Exhibition

This spring, the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve welcomes the return of its Annual Members Exhibition, featuring over 100 pieces by its professional-level member artists, hung salon-style in the main & office galleries. The show presents an exciting diversity of voices and media, as each artist is able to contribute 1 original work under 24” for display. In years past, submissions have ranged from traditionally inspired portraits and oils, to evocative assemblages and innovative digital creations.

To display your work, your AAWR membership must be current through May 1st, 2020! To check if your membership status or to renew, call our offices 216.721.9020. Membership can also be renewed HERE ON OUR WEBSITE.
