Waterville, Maine — The Waterville Area Art Society (WAAS) and Waterville Creates! are pleased to present the 2017 Maine Open Juried Art Show (MOJAS) at Common Street Arts in downtown Waterville April 11 through May 13. Now entering its 27th year, MOJAS attracted more than 80 artists and a total of 158 submissions, representing diverse Maine communities in a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, and more.

This year, MOJAS expanded its eligible media categories to include free-standing sculpture, digital art, and photography due to the increase in popularity of these art forms. An opening reception and awards ceremony will be held on Thursday, April 13th from 5:00-7:00pm.
