"RADAR" is visual interpretation of the many dimensions of climate change. Radar is a directive plea, its reflective-mourning, and a visceral offering of hope. Juried by Artlery160 Director, Tameka Eastman-Coburn with support by David Thomson (owner), this exhibition showcases twenty-eight artists from the National Association of Women Artists, MA. Ten percent of sale proceeds from this exquisite exhibition will be donated to Massachusetts Native Land Conservancy.
About National Association of Women Artists
The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), the oldest women's fine art organization in the country, is a vibrant community of professional women artists that strives to support its members and women artists at large through exhibitions, programs and education. The history of NAWA is a testament to the strength and resilience of a group of strong women who would not accept being shut out of the art salons, galleries and art exhibitions open to male artists during the 19th century. In 1889 their founding of the organization that subsequently became the National Association of Women Artists, Inc. proves that, despite adversity and discrimination – which many feel extends to this day — women are an integral and valuable part of the arts community.
