WCAC is closed until further notice!

Due to Covid-19 ramifications, we are unable to re-open safely for the time being.

To adjust to our closure, we have changed our show structures and schedules as follows:

2020 Virtual Members’ Show:

The Annual Members’ Show will be a virtual show this year and will open online on July 10th!


Member artists – please click here for the Annual Members’ Show page to access the entry form and details!
Entry deadline – Wednesday, June 24th!


Untold Stories ~ An African American Perspective

Due to closing this show early, we have posted it as a virtual show. If you weren’t able to see it in
February or March when the art center was still open, just click on the box below and visit it now!



In the works: 

Fall Members Co-op Show (August 11 – September 25) – great fun because artists work at the art center during its run

Textile and Weaving Extravaganza Show with live demos and workshops – our most popular show last year (September 29 – October 30)

Small Works/Holiday Show (November 3 – December 18). 

Due to the COVID-19 health concerns, events, exhibitions and schedules are subject to change.

Art Ed Announcements:  classes and workshops are suspended for now, but to keep you in touch with our program, Judy Leasure, Art Ed Coordinator, has implemented a series of short art ed videos on our Facebook page.  Just click on our Facebook icon at the bottom of this page – then click on Videos and learn from these experts. 

Creativity Reigns During Covid-19:  We’ve been featuring our members and volunteers in this series of Facebook and e-blast editions and will continue the series throughout our closure.  If you would like to participate, please send photos and short narratives to “Creativity Reigns During Covid-19” at visitwcac@gmail.com.  We know you are working on heartfelt projects during these stressful times and would love to highlight what you’re doing.  

In the meantime, please stay safe – we miss seeing you, but everyone’s health and safety is our main priority now!
