Connecticut Women Artists (CWA) was founded over 93 years ago, in 1929, when 20 women artists exhibited at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. Since exhibition opportunities were rare for women at that time, they started a society of female artists. As one of this country’s oldest continuing art organizations for women, CWA now has over 170 elected members. Because CWA does not own its
own gallery, the organization is able to choose from among other noteworthy Connecticut venues in which to hold their exhibits.

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


Each year, CWA chooses two senior high school students as winners from participants in the Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards. They each receive $500 and CWA invites them to show their work in this exhibit.


 CWA, Inc, its officers or agents, and the Art League of New Britain assume no responsibility for loss or damage of any kind during drop off, exhibition, or pick up. Submission of all artwork, framing, and
other materials is at the sole risk of the artist. CWA reserves the right to photograph or use submitted images for publicity. The show committee reserves the right to reject work not accurately represented by the images submitted. No substitutions allowed. Artist’s entry confirms agreement to all conditions herein stated.

Work must remain in the exhibition throughout the entire show; it cannot be removed until after the closing reception. CWA and the Art League of New Britain will not be responsible for loss or damage to art not claimed by Saturday, April 30, at 4pm. Insurance is the responsibility of each artist. Unclaimed artwork will be held in storage by CWA at the cost of $5 per day to be paid by the artist. After 30 days this artwork will become the property of CWA.

For information or questions NOT covered by the prospectus, contact Members’ Show Chair, Cynthia Cooper:, 860-356-6539. To give permission for someone else to pick up your work, please use text or email so there is a record of it.
