Juried Artist Series—In the Fall, AAWC puts out a call to artists for the opportunity to be displayed in our Gallery the following year. The Juried Artist Series consists of nine shows every year, each exhibit showcases the work of two to four artists.
Re-Art—In coordination with the RE store, this show focuses on art made from recycled materials. Artists are required to use at least 75% recycled materials that would otherwise be disposed of into waste streams. This show includes collage, assemblages, wall hangings, sculpture and other 2 or 3-dimensional artwork.
Annual Members Show—Once a year, AAWC organizes a show that is open to any member of AAWC. In this show, members have the chance to display one of their pieces on a first-come, first-served basis.
Teaching artist exhibition—Held in May, this exhibition showcases the professional work of the Allied Arts Education Project teaching artists and their students.
Art Walks—during the first Friday of every month, the AAWC Gallery hosts an opening reception for the month’s new exhibit from 6pm to 10pm. Come and meet the artists of the exhibit and enjoy some refreshments!
