The 121th Juried Exhibition of the WAAH was held at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, from February 18 until May 7, 2017. It represents the works of 21 artists, displaying 25 works of art.

"Hats off to the Women's Art Association of Hamilton. This city's oldest art organization is celebrating yet another milestone. It is 121 years since the association held its first annual juried exhibition. That was in 1896, two years after it was founded.

This year's show at the Art Gallery of Hamilton spotlights the paintings, prints and photographs of WAAH members working in a variety of styles and subjects including the human figure, still life and landscape. "
