NOTES:

There is an alternate path to become a CWA member. This is by submitting to and having work accepted into two CWA Annual National Open Juried Exhibitions and by paying dues. An artist is not a member until her dues are paid. Connecticut Women Artists does not exclude or otherwise discriminate against any person on the ground of race, color, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion, creed in admission to our ranks.

Because our mission is to promote women artists, membership privilege is extended only to women.
