No matter how challenging the times, the horizon of the future is always open. Time and space may be limited, but there is always some over the horizon. In the abstract, any division of space can show a horizon, in a real land, sea or cityscape, the horizon defines the image. The horizon is open to every individual.
The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), the oldest women’s fine art organization in the country, is a vibrant community of professional women artists that strives to support its members and women artists at large through exhibitions, programs and education.
NAWA is open to all women artists 18 years of age and older and U.S. citizens or permanent residents. The history of NAWA is a testament to the strength and resilience of a group of strong women who would not accept being shut out of the art salons, galleries and art exhibitions open to male artists during the 19th century. In 1889 their founding of the organization that subsequently became the National Association of Women Artists, Inc. proves that, despite adversity and discrimination – which many feel extends to this day — women are an integral and valuable part of the arts community.
This exhibit is only open to regular juried-in NAWA MEMBERS.
