The nonprofit organization Women Artists of the West (WAOW) is showing its 53rd National Juried Exhibition at the Carriage Factory Art Gallery.

Titled “No Place Like Home,” this show highlights the extraordinary diversity of 119 talented WAOW members working on both coasts, in between, and even beyond America’s borders.

The jury has selected two- and three-dimensional pieces in various media and styles, encompassing landscapes, cityscapes, figures, florals, still lifes, and animals.

This year’s awards judge is the distinguished artist Kim Casebeer.

This year’s venue is particularly fascinating: built around 1883, it was once a carriage factory and blacksmithing shop that was rescued by the Newton Fine Arts Association 40 years ago.
