In addition to the Juried art, which will be on view through March 26, 2017, a section of the gallery will be exhibiting works by three students in the Dreyfoos School of the Arts who were the recipients of NAWA Florida Chapter Art Scholarships. NAWA artist members raised the scholarship funds by creating works of art on 6” x 6” canvases, which they sold for $50 each. The organization is proud to make this investment in the lives of young female artists.
N.A.W.A. is the oldest professional women’s fine arts group in the United States, and The Florida Chapter of N.A.W.A. was the first regional chapter in the country. It was founded in 1995 by Liana Moonie, recently deceased resident of Palm Beach, a past president of the national organization and Madeline Weiss, who was the first president of the Florida Chapter. All artists wishing to join the prestigious Florida Chapter must first be juried into the Association Headquarters in New York City.
