WOMEN ARTISTS IN CONNECTICUT
CWA presents annual art exhibits 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 2022 Annual National Open Juried Exhibition will be presented October 16 through November 13 at the West Hartford Art League.
THE MEMBERS' GALLERY
The curated Members’ Gallery presents the selected works of participating member artists in a new visual format.
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. The gallery harmonizes a diverse selection through color and form and gifts the viewer with an immersive art experience via these strong works.
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.
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.
