OUR STORY

Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. has promoted and supported professional women artists for over 90 years and is one of the country's oldest art organizations for women. Beginning in 1929 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, metal, fiber, and textiles.
