This show will highlight IWS artwork during WFWS-45 when and where the convention and guests will be staying.

Submit your favorite water-media works no matter how old…but all must be ready to hang with wire (no sawtooth hangers). Do NOT submit the same painting(s) in both this show and the 2020 WFWS show, as WFWS results will not yet be known.
