STATE CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITS
Not all details have been finalized for this year’s Annual State Exhibit and Conference but we wanted to share the good news…
The State Exhibit and Conference will be live at the Pyle Center at UW Madison on September 24 and 25, 2021.
We are so excited to be able to meet once again. We will follow any COVID restrictions set by UW, but we are confident that we will once again be able to share time together talking art and friendship.
Watch your email and this website for information on how to register….Coming soon Children and teens are invited to attend a free outdoor watercolor workshop underwritten by the Irvin L. Young Library and AWA. Learn about the color wheel and create a beautiful work of art to bring home. Participants will receive a frame and AWA ribbon for their artwork.

Lois Ireland Tribute
On December 30, 2020 the Wisconsin art community lost one of our giants. Lois Ireland 92, passed away due to COVID-19. Ms. Ireland was a noted Regionalist artist and was known for her Wisconsin landscape paintings. At the age of 14 she caught the attention of John Steuart Curry and she was introduced at that time to the newly formed Wisconsin Regional Art Program. It is said that she created her most important regionalist work in the first decade of her practice while at UW Madison and Art Students League in New York. RIP.
