WAG is turning 60 this year, so we are gearing up for a special show to celebrate this landmark. 2020 Online Show: 60 years of WAG will be an online show since many local venues are shut down. Online shows do have certain advantages. They are easier to share with friends and family who live far away, and they don't have to be taken down rapidly to share a finite physical space. Sales can be more easily facilitated by e-commerce. Lastly, anyone who is comfortable with technology can help select awards, no matter where they live. We have taken this opportunity to seek a juror from the neighbor islands. Accomplished Maui watercolor artist and teacher Carmen Gardner has agreed to select awards for us. Please see her artist bio sheet here, listing her many awards and professional highlights: Carmen-Gardner-BioDownload Also, please visit her website to see her beautiful art and learn more: www.carmengardner.com We are excited to offer this show to our members!
