The WAA at the ACES Gallery

Each year the WAA has a special exhibit at the New Hanover Arts Council ACES Gallery on Front Street in Wilmington, NC. Our most recent show was called “It’s Cool to be Square”. Check it out by clicking HERE.

The Wilmington Art Association has one major exhibit each year, which takes place in the Spring at the Hannah Block Community Arts Center in Downtown Wilmington, NC.

The 2023 WAA Annual Juried Spring Art Show

Over 100 North Carolina and national artists present fine paintings and 3D art creations at the WAA Annual Juried Spring Art Show and Sale.  The event is open to the public to view and buy art.  This Official Art Show of the North Carolina Azalea Festival, hosted by the Wilmington Art Association, is a long-standing tradition with the North Carolina Azalea Festival.

The 2023 WAA Art Show featured art by about 225 artists, and took place at Hannah Block Building USO/ Community Arts Center, 120 S Second St, Wilmington, NC 28401

The WAA is excited to be one of the first live events of this year’s Azalea Festival. Wilmington and its surrounding communities are home to many very accomplished and award-winning artists, and this show provides local residents and visitors a wonderful opportunity to see a great variety of high-quality artwork.

About our Juror

The WAA was pleased to have Ginny Lassiter as the 2023 Juror/Judge for the show. A native of Wilson, NC, Ginny Lassiter has always been a creative soul. She’s a potter, she paints, she sketches, and she designs fabrics. She graduated from East Carolina University, majoring in art with an emphasis in design. In 2002 she opened Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash, NC, a large gallery catering to both locals and visitors to the coastal Carolinas. She sold the gallery in June of 2022. Lassiter has created a sophisticated body of work. Her paintings, often textural and almost always abstract, are primarily expressionist in nature, sometimes influenced by architectural structures, forms and spaces.
