Jan Marie De Lipsey (b. 1953), "Vermillion Escarpment," 2023, oil on panel, 30 x 40 in.

The Phippen Museum of Western Art is hosting “Dreamweavers,” the 54th National Exhibition of the nonprofit organization Women Artists of the West (WAOW). On view are 144 paintings, drawings, and sculptures created by its Master, Signature, and Associate members, who live in the U.S., Canada, and Australia and work in oil, pastel, watercolor, graphite, and bronze.

Illustrated above is the painting “Vermillion Escarpment,” which the New Mexico landscapist Jan Marie De Lipsey describes as “an unspoiled slick rock in a fantasy world of pale nooks, cool shadows, and sunlit rock — a dream world for a painter of landscapes.”

On March 9, the reception and awards banquet featured a keynote presentation by Jana Bommersbach, author of Hellraisers and Trailblazers: The Real Women of the Wild West. Among the other educational programs on WAOW’s schedule are a gallery talk by Master Emerita member Mary Ann Cherry, a painting demonstration by awards judge Jessica Garrett Lawrence, and a sculpture demo by Syri Hall, who will then bring participants to her foundry nearby.
