The Society of Washington Artists 2018 spring show was an amazing success!


There were 198 entries and of those entries there were over 40 awards presented.

$1,250 in cash was awarded to artists in six media categories.

Sponsor awards in cash and gift certificates totaled $630.

In addition, 11 pieces of art were sold during the show.


This is a new record for any SWA art show in its 56-year history.

We held the show at the Water Resources Building again and we had around 500 visitors! Fantastic. Our judge this year was the very talented Ruth Armitage - see more of her work visit her website
