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. Members represent all areas of the visual arts including painting, sculpture, photography, print-making, encaustic, video art, installations and mixed media. The benefits of membership are many, including a substantial Awards program, the opportunity to display artwork throughout the U.S. in our Exhibitions program, and inclusion in NAWA’s Annual Catalog. The NAWA Permanent Collection, established in 1991 under the direction of Liana Moonie, is housed at the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers University. The collection contains the work of NAWA artists dating from the organization’s earliest days to the present and some of the collection is always on view at the museum. #NAWA #nawa #NAWAgallery #nawagallery #womenartist #womenarts #artgallery #nycgallery #galleryopening #oneartspace #oneartspacegallery #oneartspacetribeca
