2023 On the Wild Side Exhibition

April 7, to May 15, 2023
The People's Building
9995 E Colfax Ave
Aurora, CO 80010

Thank you to all of the artists who entered the On the Wild Side Exhibition! Kathleen expressed how difficult it was to choose from the entries because all were so excellent! As you can imagine, it was even more difficult to choose the award winners out of the whole show. To celebrate those award winners, we have their art displayed below, along with the artists' names, work titles, and the awards given. We are thrilled to see how each accepted work interprets "On the Wild Side", and we hope to see all of you continue with your creative practice. Thank you again for being wonderful artists and integral parts of our watercolor society!
