AWA will host a number of virtual events throughout the run of the show, including a painting demonstration with Associate with Distinction Member Valerie Collymore, studio tour with Master-Signature Member Angela Mia De la Vega, and more.

Juror Mary Williams, owner of Mary Williams Fine Arts, Boulder, CO, shared her thoughts: “I’ve judged a lot of shows and hosted many in my gallery and this is one of the strongest shows I’ve seen in my career.”

Works in the show are for sale. Event details and images of all exhibited works will be posted on the AWA website:

AWA has offered encouragement to female artists since it emerged from the Women Artists & the West exhibition series mounted by the Tucson Museum of Art (TMA) between 1991 and 1994. Since then, AWA has expanded beyond the Western genre to embrace representational and abstract artists from all regions of the U.S. and Canada.
