The Windward Artists Guild is proud to announce the online display of our 61st Annual Member Show! Go take a look and help us pick the People’s Choice Award(s)! In the case of tie or near-tie, we will award more than one. The reception is on November 18, a Thursday in the evening. Exact time will be announced soon – please sign up to attend the reception and join us for a nice evening featuring a popular activity we call “Show and Tell” where artists can display works in progress or hot-off-the-easel works with the behind the scenes story!
All sales benefit not only the local artist but also the guild, whose members collaborate to generate grants that support art activities and education throughout Oahu and help local artists learn the skills associated with group shows and local professional development. In 2021, WAG orchestrated a series of classes jointly run in partnership with Adventist Health Castle so that the community could easily and inexpensively seek group art class activity during the pandemic from home. The classes were a popular and much needed outlet. Additionally, there were a dozen scholarship-awards given out to talented high school students in the Scholastic Art show to encourage budding artists. To finish out the year, WAG will be creating opportunities for its artists to develop their skills through both this show, and our upcoming Mini Miniature show at Arts at Marks December 2 – 8, 2021, which promises to be an exciting holiday sale of small, affordable works (a great gift for those tricky people in your life who have everything!)
Thank you for your support of local art!
