The National Association of Women Painters is the first professional women's fine art organization in the United States. The group was founded in 1819 by five innovative artists who named the organization the Women's Art Club. In 1913, they changed the name to the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, and in 1941, they renamed the organization the National Association of Women Artists, Inc.
Many recognized women artists have been associated with N.A.W.A. including Mary Cassatt, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Isabel Bishop, Alice Neal, and Miriam Schapiro. I consider it an honor to have been chosen for juried membership in 2010.
