The Annual Exhibit and Opening Event

In the development of individual artistic talent, public display of the artist’s work is as important as classroom instruction; it provides objectivity and feedback that encourages artistic growth. Each spring Artist Instructors select representative work from their classes for inclusion in the Annual Exhibit. Each chosen piece of art is framed together with a photo of the artist and biographical sketch created with the help of our teams of Life Stories Specialists and Photographers.

The opening event is a celebration of all AWE 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 experience the diverse array of art together.

The 2020 28th and 2021 29th Annual Exhibits are online exhibits and had Online Opening Events. The exhibits and event videos can be viewed below.
