Our Mission: To promote plein air painting in the State of Washington by providing painting, learning, and exhibiting opportunities.

  • The State Parks Show is a Winner!

    We celebrated the culmination of our year painting Washington State Parks at the opening reception of our juried exhibition at American Art Company in Tacoma on Saturday, October 19. This is an elegant gallery that wonderfully showcases simply beautiful paintings. There were so many superlative comments complimenting this show on Saturday. It is certainly the best show PAWA has produced to date; the bar is raised for future shows to come.

    We were pleased to have a contingent of representatives from Washington State Parks attend the opening. Don Houck, Director, even awarded us a framed certificate in honor of our efforts to celebrate the parks. And we gave a donation to the State Parks Federation.

    Eric Jacobsen handed out the awards and took time to explain the reasons for his choices. Photos of the winning paintings are currently on the Home Page slide show.

    This show would simply not have been possible without the amazing efforts of Jane Wallis, Show Chairman, and Janice Kirstein, Publicity Chairman - not to mention this was all Janice's idea in the first place. We are so fortunate to have their talent and expertise move this group forward.

    I wish we could include all of the photos of the paintings here, but the best thing really would be to go to Tacoma and see it for yourself.
