The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) was established in 1889 and has served as an organization to promote, educate and support women in the arts. The NAWA Sisterhood features the current work of NAWA’s South Carolina chapter members in honor of their NAWA contemporaries and predecessors – like Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon, Judy Chicago and Anna Hyatt Huntington – thereby recognizing the invaluable and abundant support that NAWA has provided and continues to provide for women in the arts for the past 135 years. Works will range in media and style and will include sculpture, painting, photography, fiber art, collage, drawing and installation art.
This program is sponsored by South Carolina Humanities, a state program of the National Endowment for the Humanities; inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture and heritage.
