The Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art is proudly presenting The International Biennial Portrait Competition 2019. They are excited to offer this new exhibit every two years to bring the best portrait painters and sculptors 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 was open to all painters and sculptors internationally, ages 18 and over and sponsored by WMOCA, Didi Menendez, PoetsArtists, and Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. The accepted works will be on exhibition at the Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art from April 9, through June 29, 2019, with a Reception for the artists on April 25 from 6-8pm. Open to the public. This year’s competition was curated by David Hummer and Margaret Bowland, Painting Instructor, New York Academy of Art, New York, NY. Margaret will be making her final selections in person on April 25.
