Water Works Annual Juried Art Show

Wisconsin professional artists and Wisconsin residents for whom fine art is an avocation are invited to submit entries for “Water Works,” Plymouth Arts Center’s 24th Annual Juried Exhibit.” Water is essential to support all life forms on earth. Artists are invited to enter original works with a personal view of its impact. The power of the oceans, inland seas, and rivers is unlimited. Accessibility to water enables the founding and sustaining of civilization in wildly diverse locations across the planet. We are charged with the continuous preservation of this, our most important resource.

Artists must be 18 years and over to enter. The competition is open to all two and three-dimensional fine art media including, but not limited to, pastel, painting, sculpture, graphite, drawing, photography, fiber, ceramics, metal, glass, wood, paper, jewelry, leather, printmaking and mixed media. Postmark deadline for entries is March 22, 2019. “Water Works” will open to the public on Fri., May 10, 2019 with a festive reception beginning at 4:30pm. Awards will be presented at 6:30pm. The exhibition will be on display through August 2nd. To receive a prospectus, call (920) 892-8409, E-mail:, or applications may be downloaded HERE
