AIS 2020 Online Juried Exhibition   We heard you!  

Our survey results produced important feedback from our members.

Your AIS board members planned this online exhibit in response to requests from our artist members in our survey in late 2019 and months before the impact of the pandemic. Are we clairvoyant? Probably not, but it is absolutely serendipity!
