Exhibition Details

The Connecticut Women Artists organization was founded 89 years ago in 1929 when thirteen women artists exhibited at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. Since exhibition opportunities were rare for women at that time these women started a society of female artists. One of this country’s oldest continuing art organizations for women, CWA now has over 200 elected members.

The Connecticut Women Artists encourage all members to enter this CWA Member’s Juried exhibit and show the diverse and exceptional creative talents of our members.
