Dedicated to the inspiration, encouragement, and recognition of women in fine arts, American Women Artists is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a “Members Show & National Juried Exhibition” in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Although events began on November 9, the non-profit American Women Artists (AWA) has planned a number of exciting opportunities throughout this week in Scottsdale, Arizona. Celebrating 25 years of excellence and hosted by the Scottsdale Artists’ School, festivities kicked off with a number of AWA workshops during which several of the organization’s members shared their artistic techniques and creative processes.
