The final CaFÉ Workshop: Wednesday, August 8, 2018 (see below) at WAA. All are welcome. 

Good things are happening at the Wickford Art Association (WAA), and we are excited to share the news!

Continually, we seek opportunities to improve benefits to our membership, and enhance our programs, classes and exhibits. To that end, WAA's Board of Directors voted recently to use technology in a way that:

• Provides opportunities to participate in regional and national exhibits,
• Reduces the effort needed to enter our exhibits,
• Broadens the base of participation in our exhibits, and
• Increases our membership.

We view this decision as one that benefits everyone and makes WAA an even better arts organization than it is now.

For the 2018 National Juried Photography Exhibition, we will use CaFÉ, an on-line entry management system that has been in existence since 2005 and has helped thousands of art organizations and artists. Many artists have already used the CaFÉ system to enter their art in other competitions managed by the Art League Rhode Island, Providence Art Club and several groups in Southern New England and across the nation.

Change is a reality that can help us all grow stronger, and WAA is committed to assisting our members in working with CaFE as we use it for this photography exhibition. Our goal is to maintain reasonable application fees, have several workshops to encourage membership participation, and provide specific registration assistance and continued updates.

The third and final CaFÉ workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, August 8th. 
All are welcome! Bring your images and laptop, or use our laptops. 
Please join us to learn more about CaFÉ, how to set up your own free account, enter shows and manage your files.

Session one / Wednesday, August 8th at 6 PM:  
Uploading and managing image files: guidance on creating and managing your files and folders, re-sizing and uploading images to your CaFÉ library. 

Session two / Wednesday, August 8th at 7 PM: 
Introduction to CaFÉ and WAA's first national exhibit.

Please monitor this page for updates. Click this link to the Call for Entry and all the details. We look forward to this exciting opportunity to move WAA and our membership into a new and exciting time. We encourage you to stop in and visit our many exhibits and welcome you to participate in our classes. We thank our many members, volunteers, supporters and community for all the support.

President, WAA Board of Directors
