As you probably know, the 2020 SWA International Juried Exhibition scheduled for April & May was unfortunately cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

We had hoped all of the amazing paintings would hang in the Fort Worth Central Library’s Atrium Gallery as they have each Spring for many years.

So we have created an online gallery of all of the paintings for you to view, and will also be putting all of images in a YouTube video, which will be uploaded in just a few days.

We are now proud to announce the winners of the 2020 SWA International Juried Exhibition.
