CONNECTICUT WOMEN ARTISTS ANNUAL MEMBERS’ JURIED EXHIBIT

 

March 1, 2022


Connecticut Women Artists (CWA), an organization which has been active in the Constitution State for over 90 years, invites the public to its annual Members’ Juried Exhibit, to be held at the Art League of New Britain, 30 Cedar Street, New Britain, CT from April 2 to April 29, 2022. This year CWA received over 200 entries, including fiber art, painting, mixed media, and photography. The opening reception and award ceremony will take place on Saturday, April 2, from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm. The April 2 awards ceremony will also be the venue for honoring two high school students from Connecticut’s Scholastic Art Awards, an annual competition sponsored by the Connecticut Art Education Association. Each year, CWA selects two entrants from this competition and awards them each a $500 scholarship to further their art education. These young artists are invited to show their work at our annual Members’ Exhibit.

 

Our juror is Susan Finnegan, who is a visiting professor of painting at Trinity College and an adjunct professor at the Hartford Art School. Six awards totaling $1000 will be granted in cash prizes.
