Winners will be awarded more than $7,000 in prizes during the 41st International Watermedia Exhibition, juried by Iain Stewart. Want to throw your hat in the ring? The deadline is approaching.

The 41st Annual International Watermedia Exhibition will highlight the artistic excellence of its global participants in a gallery exhibition held in Houston’s popular Museum District. In March 2018, selected entries will receive maximum exposure in a juried, month-long exhibition and have an opportunity to win generous awards from sponsors.

This year, highly sought-after painter Iain Stewart is the honorary juror and instructor. Through strong marketing efforts, public relations, and advertising, the 2018 International Watermedia Exhibition is intended to help provide optimal exposure for outstanding international artists who excel in water media.

The deadline for entries is January 12, 2018, with the exhibition running from March 4 through April 5. Artworks must be original and in water-soluble media (at least 80 percent water media: watercolor, acrylic, gouache, egg tempera, casein, ink). No water-mixable oils are accepted.
