Connecticut Women Artists (CWA) invites the art-loving public to its Annual Members’ Juried Show at the Art League of New Britain, which will take place from Saturday April 4 to Friday May 1, 2020.
The opening reception, where $750 in cash awards will be presented to six participating artists, will be on Saturday, April 4, from 1 to 3 p.m. The closing reception will be on Friday, May 1, from 6 to 8 p.m.
All CWA members whose dues are paid in full are encouraged to participate. The deadline for submitting entries is midnight on Sunday, March 1, 2020, at onlinejuriedshows.com.
CWA recently celebrated its 90th year of supporting and encouraging women in the arts. The group, which came together in the early 20th century over the lack of exhibition opportunities for women artists at the time, held its first exhibition in 1929 at Hartford’s Wadsworth Athenaeum. With over 100 members, the group is now one of the nation’s oldest arts advocacy groups for women.
The juror for selection and awards is Jean Dalton, who exhibits her works widely and is the recipient of numerous awards. Ms. Dalton studied at the Newark School of Fine & Industrial Art, N.J., the Pratt institute, Brooklyn, N.Y., and the Art Students League, N.Y. She is a former president of CWA.
Details, including entry fees, delivery and pick up deadlines, commission structure, and opening date and time, are available in the online at ctwomenartists.org/events. Individual questions may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
