The Annual Exhibit

The Annual Show and Celebration

In the development of individual artistic talent, public display of the artist’s work can be as important as classroom instruction; it can provide objectivity and feedback that encourages artistic growth. Art With Elders takes exhibiting seriously. Each spring, Artist Instructors submit representative work from their classes for the Annual Exhibit. A jury of AWE staff and professional artists from the community select 100 works, from approximately 400 submissions, to be included in the exhibit. Each chosen piece of art is framed together with a professionally-taken black and white photo of the artist and brief biographical sketch created with the help of our volunteer Life Stories Specialist and Photography Teams.

The opening event is a celebration of all AWE program artists and their communities. Family, friends, and the general public are invited to attend the festivities, held each October. The much anticipated yearly event is an opportunity for all to celebrate, socialize, and experience the diverse array of art together. In 2020, AWE hosted its 28th Annual Exhibit and Celebration as an online event, featuring a retrospective video, which can be viewed on the Annual Exhibits page of our website.
