About the Exhibition

Begin Again


Registration Opens: November 9 at 9:00am

Each year, the State Gallery lights up with more than 200 artworks submitted by MOWA members of all ages and levels of experience. The Members’ Show coincides with Magic Wilderness: Dreamscapes of the Forest, which dissects how people connect with nature. This year’s theme Begin Again also contemplates how connection can reconcile the external world with the deeply personal self. Both exhibitions demarcate how Wisconsin artists have been brave enough to grow, especially over the last two years. Submit your artwork and be part of the conversation about artists, members, and MOWA moving forward together.

A valid membership through January 31, 2023 is required to exhibit.
