We are thrilled to announce that WLAS has been selected to participate in the prestigious SCOPE Art Show, held on the shores of Miami Beach from December 5-10, 2023. This is a remarkable achievement for us, as WLAS was chosen among thousands of applications from galleries around the world. SCOPE is a career-altering opportunity for our gallery, the the six exceptionally talented artists: Martha A. WadeCandace HunterReisha, Gretchen Jankowski, Tyler Clark, and Dana Todd Pope approved to exhibit their works.

To turn this dream into a reality, we need your support. The costs associated with participation, including exhibition fees, transportation of art pieces, promotional materials, and accommodations for our artists, are substantial. This is where you come in. With your generous contribution, you can make a significant impact on our journey to SCOPE Miami Beach 2023. Your support will help cover the expenses and ensure that our talented artists have the opportunity to present their works on an international stage.


Max Sansing has generously donated the proceeds from the sale of this hand pulled screen print to WLAS, and our journey to SCOPE Art Show. This is the epitome of artists supporting artists, and men lifting up women!
