Dear Artists,

CWA is pleased to announce the acceptances to our 50th National Exhibition.

If your name appears below, we offer you our congratulations!  In a few days you will receive your acceptance documents electronically.  They will include all the necessary information.

If your name does not appear, we regret that your work was not chosen.  Our juror, John Salminen, had no easy task selecting 85 paintings from more than 600 entries.  The submitted work was exceptional.

We appreciate the support and interest from such a wide range of talented artists, both from across the United States and abroad.  We thank you for entering and hope you will again in the future.
