This show is open to any artist who works or resides (currently or formerly) in Wayne or Holmes County. 

At Wayne Center for the Arts, we're committed to showcasing the work of local artists. This year's Wayne/Holmes Artists' Exhibition is being planned as usual, with the understanding that the format may need to be adjusted pending state guidelines on large gatherings. At this point, as of August 2020, the WCA building is open for limited classes but has not yet returned to our full event schedule. We know that, no matter what, we are planning a celebration of local art which will be displayed in a flexible format. We know that early notice is important for artists to create their best work, so we are still opening submissions as planned.
