Call for Artists
Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. (CWA) is one of the country's oldest women's art organizations, beginning in 1929. CWA presents the National Open Juried Exhibition in the fall each year, showcasing selected works in a broad range of styles and media submitted by women artists from the United States. The Members' Juried Show is held annually in the spring. Council members are invited to exhibit their work annually at the Council Show that takes place during the winter season.
Galleries and museums hosting the exhibitions are among Connecticut's most well-known and respected art venues. Jurors are chosen each year from among the most talented and significant women in visual arts. The artists, educators, and curators who have worked with us are all outstanding and have made significant contributions to the art world.
Upcoming exhibitions and calls for art are added to the events calendar and this page when dates are confirmed. Submit work and view prospectuses for the Annual National Open Juried and Annual Members' Juried exhibitions on OnlineJuriedShows.com
