The Connecticut Women Artists hold juried exhibition at Fairfield University's Walsh Art Gallery


The Connecticut Women Artists, Inc., will hold its 75th annual juried exhibition, featuring intriguing works in a variety of media, from Thursday, June 17, through Sunday, Aug. 1, at Fairfield University's Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery.

Founded in 1929 by 13 women artists exhibiting at the Wadsworth, CWA provides a forum for women's artwork and emphasizes the value of art in society. The organization has 200 members and offers an open juried show and a members' juried show each year at galleries in the state. The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Lyman Allyn Museum in New Britain and the John Slade Ely House in New Haven have hosted past exhibitions.

Admission to the exhibit is free and open to the public. The Walsh Art Gallery is located in the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts. The hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
