Exhibitions


The Museum has an active rotating exhibition schedule that includes notable traveling exhibitions, the work of living artists, and exhibitions that highlight the Museum’s permanent collection and important loans. In addition to rotating exhibitions, the Museum dedicates galleries to ongoing long-term exhibitions that include some of the most significant works of art in the Museum’s collection.

For over 80 years, the Museum has held two juried exhibitions annually: the Cumberland Valley Photographic Salon and the Cumberland Valley Artists Exhibition. Both are juried exhibitions open to amateur and professional artists. These prestigious exhibitions continue to grow and showcase the art of the talented artists of the region and beyond. If you would like to receive notifications about these exhibitions, please email info@wcmfa.org and specify if would like to be added to the photography list, artists list, or both.

The Museum continues a longstanding tradition of cooperation in the arts with the Washington County Public Schools. This is most visible in the annual Public School Art Exhibition held in April and May each year. The amazing works of art by kindergarten through 12th grade students fills the Museum’s largest gallery and showcases the dedication of the Washington County Public School art teachers.
