WCA/NH is thrilled to have the distinguished support of their sponsors, which allows WCA/NH to recognize participating artists with cash awards.

The 6x6 Show: The 6x6 show is an annual exhibit WCA/NH has been doing since 1995. The Notecard Project was added to the show in 2012, to help fund our scholarship program.The 6x6 show is scheduled every year favorably in the Fall.
We sell a set of 4 panels for $20. This covers the cost of the materials and works as the entrance fee for the show. There is no theme. Any medium can be used as long as it uses, or is attached to the panel. All submissions are excepted.
The panels are a MDF panel, sized 6 inches by 6 inches (and is the name of the show.) WCA/NH makes the panels with a common keyhole in the back, which allows us to mount the show efficiently using a grid system. The panels are displayed together on a large wall mosaic style.
The Scholarship: WCA/NH awards an art scholarship of $1,000.00 a year to a deserving New Hampshire women, pursuing a degree program in the arts, at a New Hampshire college. WCANH College Scholarship Program
