2024 IWS Annual Juried Exhibition

By Annual Juried Exhibition, Annual Show Location, ArtCall, Events

Greetings IWS members!

Attached is the prospectus for the 2024 IWS Annual Juried Exhibition.  We will be using digital entries in ArtCall as in previous years, and the ArtCall site will open on Friday, February 9, 2024.  The end date for submissions is Wednesday March 27, 9 PM MST.

We are exhibiting this year at the Riverside Hotel in Boise.  The show will be up for 2 months starting in May.  This will increase time in front of prospective buyers significantly.

Please review the prospectus.  We were very careful to make everything clear but are happy to answer questions.  Contact Scott at 805-795-0252 or via email (email preferred) at

Paintings must be received at the Riverside Hotel by Friday April 26, 2024.

Good luck, and it will be a great show!

Please join me in congratulating these artists for their excellent work! My personal thank you to all of the 35 IWS members that entered, even if their work was not chosen. Note some emails from ArtCall did not go through and AWA is working on the issue.
