124th Annual Members' Exhibition
Dates: August 27- September 28, 2013.
This year's Annual exhibition and sale continued N.A.W.A.’s long-standing tradition of supporting dynamic and relevant woman artists working all over the U.S.A. Over 250 members participated in this year’s Annual Members’ Exhibition, representing a diverse array of artistic backgrounds, mediums and processes. Artists self-selected their best work to be presented salon-style in the spacious Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery.
Held during the peak of New York's Fall Arts season, N.A.W.A.'s Annual exhibition enjoyed a great run in its 124th year. Artists, collectors, and connoisseurs alike showed up to view and enjoy the exhibition. The reception, held on September 19th, was a high-point for the exhibition, drawing together art enthusiasts both young and old.
The awards ceremony also took place during the reception, where $10,000 in prestigious awards were bestowed upon selected members’ works. Juried by prominent artists Nancy Azara, Joyce Pommer and Lydia Viscardi, 38 works received awards, including five medal of honor winners, in the categories of Painting, Works on Paper, Photography/ Digital Art/ Printmaking, Mixed Media & Collage, and Sculpture.
As N.A.W.A.’s landmark 125th anniversary approaches in 2014, members are already preparing for and looking forward to next year's Annual Members' Exhibition.
