The nonprofit organization Women Artists of the West (WAOW) has mounted its 52nd National Exhibition at Cynthia McBride Gallery. The organizers have titled it “East Meets West” to underscore the extraordinary diversity of talented WAOW members working on both coasts, in between, and even beyond America’s borders. The jury has selected more than 140 two- and three-dimensional pieces in various media and styles, encompassing landscapes, cityscapes, figures, florals, still lifes, and animals.
WAOW was founded in 1971 in Norco, California, by a small group of women seeking to network as professionals and promote their careers through exhibitions and advertising. Their first show was held in Palm Springs, and WAOW has subsequently exhibited far beyond California.
Today it has approximately 350 members residing in more than 30 states. Particularly central to the organization’s life is mentorship, and indeed many members share their expertise with each other via activities scheduled throughout the year.
