    The Southern Chapter invites all NMWS Members statewide to submit artwork for selection to the 2023 Fall Exhibition.  Acceptance to this exhibition applies to signature status.   Arrangements to transport paintings from Northern Chapter area are in process. 

    THEME:  “A Happy Place". During times of stress, we are often told to go to our 'happy place' and that means different things to different people--perhaps an actual place; your kitchen or yard, a favorite town or city, a campfire, beach, quiet forest, or lake or waterfall. Or maybe it is a friend or family member or a mood or a feeling. After so many months of staying home and isolation, this is an opportunity to show us through your art, your happy place.

    NOTE: All painting entries and payments must be made ONLY through this Art Call Website link:

    Download our one page of instructions: easy steps to upload photos and enter Art Call exhibitions.
