The Western Cast Iron Art Alliance has postponed the 2020 conference. The Vermillion, South Dakota 7th Biennial WESTERN CAST IRON ART CONFERENCE: Passion and Practice will now take place OCTOBER 6TH – 10TH, 2021.
To celebrate studio practice during this time of distancing, and to mark the original conference dates, the WCIAA board members each invited several artists to participate in WCIAA 2020 Situational Invitational.
This is a virtual exhibition as we embrace the need to share artwork in new and unforeseen ways. Please enjoy the work of those we honor and stand amongst as artists alike as we present work dating from this momentous year of pandemic and unrest, 2020.
