Artists are invited to participate in the Annual September Mint Hill Arts Water Media Judged Show. This particular show does not have a set theme, so your imagination is your only limitation!
Water Media Criteria
Water media works only. Please note that water media is the general term for media that are distinguished from oil or other media by being diluted with water when used, i.e., watercolor, gouache, ink, casein, egg tempera, acrylic. It is sometimes combined with other media, commonly collage. Further, the piece must be painted on watercolor paper, watercolor board, or synthetic paper (i.e. Yupo). No canvas is allowed. Watercolor crayon, watercolor pastel, and watercolor pencil are allowed if used in a water-soluble manner (i.e. the majority of lines and shading dissolved).

2nd prize – $75
3rd prize – $50
MHA Members: $10 for up to 2 pieces.
