ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S OLDEST ART ORGANIZATIONS FOR WOMEN

Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. is a premier art organization that has promoted and supported professional women artists since 1929. Beginning with a small group of some of the most outstanding American women artists of that era from central Connecticut, CWA has grown to what it is today. We are a statewide organization of highly accomplished artists working in various media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, assemblage, photography, clay, glass, and fiber.

CWA hosts numerous events during the year for members and art lovers. View the events calendar for news about current and upcoming exhibitions, calls for artists, and the dates of special and live stream events for members.

PROVIDING ART EXHIBITION 
OPPORTUNITIES IN CONNECTICUT

CWA presents annual art exhibitions in Connecticut, including the National Open Juried Exhibition, the Members' Juried Show, and the Council Members' Show at well-known and respected galleries and museums throughout the state.

The curated Members’ Gallery annually presents a fresh look at the selected works of participating member artists. On display in the gallery are works influenced by Contemporary Realism, Impressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, and other genres, created using traditional and non-traditional media.
