The World of Art Showcase (WOAS), sponsored by Jerry’s Artarama
(, is an international art show dedicated to exhibiting talented artists and creating a
community where artists have direct access to their market. The inception
of WOAS arose from a desire to redefine the role art plays in our society – to
get back to the grassroots of what art stands for and to revolutionize the way
the art market functions. Aligning its vision with that of the Raleigh
Arts Commission in transforming the “City of Oaks” into the
“Creative Capital of the South” WOAS will host its inaugural event at
the Raleigh Convention Center the first weekend in November. Audience members
will have the opportunity to attend receptions, artist lectures, panel
discussions, live art demonstrations and more. For
