Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. has promoted and supported professional women artists for over 90 years. 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 a variety of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, assemblage, photography, clay, metal, fiber, textiles, and glass.


The goal of Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. is to foster and promote interest in the visual arts by women artists in Connecticut, to maintain the highest possible standards of achievement among them, to provide exhibitions, and to encourage any other activities beneficial to artistic endeavors.



Opportunities to exhibit your work at respected galleries and museums, network with our community of accomplished artists, or utilize your skills volunteering for our organization are all part of the CWA experience.


We invite you to become a member.
