1st Annual Wayne/Holmes Artists' Exhibition

For the first time ever, the Wayne Center for the Arts presents an annual exhibit with just our local artists in mind! 

Throughout the year, we regularly receive numerous requests for individual or group shows, but often cannot accommodate them in a timely manner due to a gallery schedule that is booked several years in advance.  

Our goal is to remedy that situation by committing to an annual opportunity for any artist in Wayne or Holmes Counties to have the opportunity to be part of a yearly celebration of the artists in our community.  Through a juried application process, artists can apply for up to three pieces of work to be entered for acceptance, to win cash prizes, and to eventually share their works with the community in the galleries of the Wayne Center for the Arts!  

This exhibit is possible due to the generous support of the donors and members of the Wayne Center for the Arts and with special thanks to the Holmes Center for the Arts
