Connecticut Women Artists (CWA) boasts over 200 elected women artists. CWA has supported and promoted women artists for over 86 years. The organization was sparked by a landmark exhibition of thirteen women artists at Hartford's Wadsworth Atheneum in 1929. CWA has continued to promote the exhibition of an array of works by its members including drawing, illustration, painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and fiber arts. CWA exhibitions testify to the experience and mastery of creative women in Connecticut. "The Council Show 2015" continues this outstanding tradition.
"The Council Show" continues through October 30. Stockman Gallery is located at 19 Chestnut Street on the second floor of the Trinity-on-Main Annex. There is abundant parking (free after 5 p.m. and on weekends) on the street adjacent to the new space.
