New Waves 2017
Virginia MOCA proudly celebrates its 22nd juried exhibition, New Waves 2017. This annual tradition presents a small portion of the vast array of artistic talent found in our Commonwealth - over 300 artists submitted work!
MOCA would like to thank juror, Ken Harman, and all the artists who submitted entries. As you move through the gallery, you will see a ballot box asking to vote for the People’s Choice award. Take part in this year’s exhibition by voting for your favorite artwork. MOCA will announce the winner at the end of the exhibition.
Organized by Heather Hakimzadeh for Virginia MOCA.
