EXHIBITION DETAILS
The Connecticut Women Artists organization was founded 90 years ago in 1929 when thirteen women artists exhibited at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. Since exhibition opportunities were rare for women at that time these women began a society of female artists. One of this country’s oldest continuing art organizations for women, CWA now has over 170 elected members.
