Due to the COVID-19 pandemic “Making Their Mark: American Women Artists” will now be a virtual show. The show will run from May 27 through August 23, 2020. This digital exhibition will feature 113 paintings and sculptures by members of American Women Artists (AWA). This is the fifth show in AWA’s 25 in 25 campaign to have 25 museum shows for its women artist members over the next 25 years.
From the organizers:
Both AWA and the Booth Museum are very excited to present this exhibition. The caliber of work included in this show is incredible and we are pleased to share it with the public.
The Booth Museum hosted an AWA exhibition in 2014 and acquired numerous works from the show for their permanent collection, including paintings by Krystii Melaine (WA) and Nancy Boren (TX). Museum acquisitions of works by women artists is an important part of AWA’s 25 in 25 mission to address the lack of women artists in museum collections; estimated to be as low as 3-5%.
The Booth Museum and AWA will host a number of virtual events throughout the run of the show. Works in the show are for sale. Event details and images of all exhibited works will be posted on the AWA website: www.americanwomenartists.org.
