NAWA Celebrates 125 years with “Women of Vision” Exhibition

So often, when we speak of “visionaries”, we are mindful of those people from the not-too-distant past and usually, the present.   The Rickie Report shares an article about  visionary artists who anticipated the needs of others 125 years ago! They formed the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) to foster public awareness of, and interest in, visual art created by women in the United States.  NAWA promotes culture and education in the visual arts through exhibitions of its members’ works, educational programs, scholarships, awards and its historical archives.  While encouraging contemporary and emerging artists, NAWA honors and continues the long and important contribution of women to the history of American culture and art.  The Rickie Report hopes that emerging as well as established artists will consider membership in this prestigious group. It goes beyond networking for one’s own gain, as they secure the future for the arts here in the United States.

 

 

 

The National Association of Women Artists, Inc. (NAWA), the first professional women’s fine arts group in the United States, is proud to celebrate its 125th Anniversary in 2014.  Five innovative women in New York City founded the not-for-profit in 1889 to foster public awareness and interest in visual art created by women as well as to empower, support and encourage women artists. Its early exhibitions included works by such notable artists as Mary Cassatt and Suzanne Valadon, and later membership rosters included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, and Judy Chicago.

125 Years: Women of Vision

National Association of Women Artists, Inc.

 

 

 

The Florida Chapter of NAWA was the first regional chapter in the country. It was founded in 1995 by Liana Moonie, of Palm Beach, a past president of the national organization and Madeline Weiss, who was the first president of the Florida Chapter. The Chapter takes part in regional exhibitions, seminars and other educational activities as well as sponsoring annual scholarships for talented art students. All artists wishing to join the Florida Chapter must first be juried into the Association Headquarters in New York City.
During this celebratory year the theme is “Women of Vision.”  Members must have been juried into N.A.W.A., where they were eligible to be juried into the national show, a forum for women artists from all over the United States. This multimedia show, “125 Years: Women of Vision,” which will include sculpture, painting, photography, ceramics and mixed media will take place at our own Armory Art Center, 1700 Parker Avenue, West Palm Beach, December 5, 2014 – January 10, 2015. Rhoda Sherbell, a distinguished portrait sculptor, will jury entries for the exhibit, and Ashley Ford, the Sophie Davis Curatorial Fellow at the Norton Museum of Art, will jury the awards.

 

 

 

 

To learn more about this prestigious organization and how to become a member visit www.theNAWA.org and www.NAWAFL.com   NAWA welcomes applications from professional women artists as well as emerging and student artists who are U.S. citizens and/or permanent U.S. residents, 18 years of age or older. Artists are juried in twice a year,in the fall and in the spring. There are many benefits from belonging to this nationally recognized organization.
