The Wilmington Art Association is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for area visual artists to gain community recognition through shows and exhibitions. It offers a forum wherein artists, local craftsmen, and people interested in the visual arts can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and contribute to the community. It provides educational programs, demonstrations, and lectures, which will lead to better public understanding and appreciation of visual arts.

WOW! We are proud to present the beautiful works that make up our Spring Show online. We were all so disappointed when our annual show and sale had to be canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our show committee had worked so hard and we were only a week away from opening. Rather than keep everyone in suspense until events became more settled, we heeded the suggestions that we publish the show. So visit the show on a portion of our new website and share with all your friends.
In an effort to support members of our community who need help with basic needs, the WAA is donating 10% of the Spring Show sales to Mother Hubbard's Cupboard in Wilmington. You can also make a donation to add to this amount by going to the Donate page on this website.

At this time we encourage you to follow the recommendations of your state and local officials, stay healthy and use this time to create more beautiful work. Our regular meetings will resume once we get an all-clear from authorities.
