Welcome to the first WMOCA International Biennial Portrait Competition, (IBPC)! We are excited to offer this new exhibit every two years to bring the best portrait painters from around the world to the heart of America. Serious venues for portrait and figurative painting are few and far between in the US. We believe this exhibition, as it grows, will rival that of the Smithsonian’s Outwin Boochever, in Washington, DC, and the BP Portrait Awards, in London, England.
This competition is open to all painters Internationally ages 18 and over.
Accepted works will be on exhibit at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art from April 9, through June 29, 2019.
This year’s juror is Margaret Bowland, Painting Instructor, New York Academy of Art, New York, NY.
