Cuyahoga Valley Art Center Presents Their 39th Annual:

Whiskey Painters of America Exhibition and Art Sale

August 31st – October 7th, 2021

Cuyahoga Falls Art Center: Main Gallery

The Whiskey Painters of America (WPA) have been invited to participate in the 39th Whiskey Painters of America Exhibition and Art Sale held at the Cuyahoga Valley Art Center, 2131 Front Street Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221, from August 31st – October 7th. This popular annual exhibition opens on Tuesday, August 31st, kicking off the People’s Choice selection process. We invite the public to participate in our People’s Choice voting process that will select the top five best of show paintings on display. Winners will be announced Thursday, October 7th.

This exhibition will display the largest collection of Whiskey Paintings for sale in one location in the world.  A Whiskey Painting is a watercolor miniature, no larger than 4” x 5” in size and is created by dipping one’s paint brush in some form of alcoholic spirits instead of water. The WPA was officially established in 1962, at Tangier Night Club in Akron, Ohio to promote the fine art of painting in miniature. To become a member of this exclusive organization, an applicant must first have a bona-fide member of the WPA as a sponsor. The Whiskey Painters of America is the most unique and exclusive miniature painting society in the world.’

For this 39th exhibition, members of the WPA have elected to donate Whiskey Paintings to be raffled off at the conclusion of the exhibition.  The proceeds from these raffled items will be used to support CVAC’s Vibrant Pallet Scholarship Fund. CVAC believes that no one with an interest in taking an art class should be deterred from doing so because of cost. CVAC’s Vibrant Pallet Scholarship Fund offers full class scholarship opportunities to students (2nd Grade – Adult) with an interest in art and a financial need. Raffle tickets can be purchased August 31st through October 6th at CVAC or over the phone at (330)928-8092, 1 ticket for $10 / 3 tickets for $20 / 10 tickets for $50. Winners will be announced/contacted October 8, 2021.

Whiskey Paintings, the perfect décor for your home or office, generally sell for a minimum of $75 to as high as $1500, with the average selling price between $150 and $300. Thus, by purchasing a raffle ticket you have the potential to win a Whiskey Painting for as low as $10, while donating to a worthy cause.
