The WAE Open 2022

Juried Exhibition

The WAE Open – Annual Juried Exhibition

We are thrilled to be able to present the work selected for the inaugural show of this annual exhibition. The WAE Open, is a showcase of the highest quality visual art being made at this moment in time.

Juror Diedra Harris Kelley: “The artworks chosen for this exhibition show a variety of contemporary topics and techniques – photography, collage, ink drawings, encaustic paintings, and ceramic sculptural forms. Many works employ traditional mediums that push boundaries and reorient ways of seeing.”
