CWAJ Print Show is a highly respected annual exhibition and sale of contemporary Japanese prints.  The first Print Show was held in 1956 and showcased a new form of woodblock print, “sōsaku hanga,” characterized by individuality and freedom of expression.

This first show helped establish CWAJ as an important presence in the Japanese art community and created a firm foundation for raising funds for CWAJ scholarships through participation of well-known artists. Print Show today remains notable for its globalism, attracting artists, jurors, and visitors from around the world and managed by CWAJ membership’s own devoted pool of international members.

Looking to the future, Print Show supports upcoming artists through the annual Young Printmaker Award. The winner is selected on the criteria of a project proposal, artistic potential, and creativity.  

CWAJ also reaches out to the visually impaired community through Hands-on Art. Raised images of several prints selected from the current exhibition allow the visually impaired to grasp outlines and shapes and enjoy the Print Show with normal-sighted visitors.
