About Connecticut Women Artists, Inc.

Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. (, has been in existence since 1929, when a group of women artists, dismayed about the paucity of exhibition opportunities for women at that time, came together for a pioneering exhibition at Hartford’s Wadsworth Atheneum. Since that time, the group has grown to over 140 members.  Opportunities for women in the arts have vastly improved since 1929, but there is still a need for our presence, and exhibition opportunities, for women artists in the state of Connecticut.

More information about this vibrant group is available on our website,
