The National Association of Women Artists is primarily a volunteer-run organization with members from Harlem to Hollywood.

For the last 134 years, NAWA has educated, empowered, and exhibited women artists with the help of volunteer members. NAWA honors these women who over the years have contributed their precious time to continue the mission.

Though many NAWA members offer their expertise in smaller increments, there are those who contribute much more of their time. NAWA honors these Art Angels each year with an exhibition showcasing their work.

NAWA is driven by the kindness, generosity, goodwill, and expertise of its volunteers. They are the energy and the driving force behind the continuation and expansion of this organization that has been focused on supporting the efforts of women artists since 1889.
