Women Painters of Washington


The Legacy Continues: Empowering Women

Women Painters of Washington presents an event marking our 90th anniversary and celebrates the 100th year of women gaining the right to vote in Washington state.
Concurrently with the Washington State Historical Society show celebrating women’s suffrage, we will celebrate our vibrant, accomplished, and professional artist members who are so similar to our suffragette sisters.
This art exhibit will be a striking tribute to our spirited beginnings and honor the strength of our legacy over time.
