EXHIBITION DETAILS 

Connecticut Women Artists organization was founded 90 years ago in 1929 when twenty 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 160 elected members. 

The Connecticut Women Artists encourages all members to enter this CWA Members’ Juried exhibit and show the diverse and exceptional creative talents of our members.
