NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF WOMEN ARTISTS WARMS UP WiNTER WITH THEIR SMALL WORK SHOW

For the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), the Small Works exhibitions held in the summer and winter have become a treasured tradition among members and non-members alike. From February 6-27, 2019, the works on display at the NAWA Gallery will prove that the size of an artwork does not have to determine its excellence or worth. With a close study, viewers will find remarkable detail and precision at play in several mediums. They will also find a surprising seriousness and boldness of intent often reserved for larger works.

NAWA is celebrating its 130th Anniversary in 2019, in honor of the five women who gathered together at the Washington Square home of Grace Fitz-Randolph on a cold night in January to create the first women's art club. Today their talented counterparts continue the mission of supporting public awareness of the visual art created by women throughout the United States. Over 800 professional women artists comprise the national membership. Each year an array of juried exhibitions and awards, numerous workshops, and fundraising events increase NAWA's visibility nationwide.

This winter, NAWA invites friends and newcomers alike to come in from the cold to experience the Small Works Winter Show. The reception on Thursday, February 7, 2019, from 5-7 pm, at the NAWA Gallery, 315 West 39th Street, Suite 508, New York, NY. It will be a rare opportunity to meet the artists and warm up with their bright and innovative works.

Kathleen Zimmerman’s Universe Series - Night Mare (pictured at the top of this post) was juried into this national NYC exhibition. This serigraphic print is one in a series of 5 related prints (pictured directly above). In these playful explorations, Kathleen looks at the Universe and our reaction to it. Who hasn't dreamed of scary aliens invading from afar, imagined what makes up the rings of Saturn, wondered what it would be like living in the caves of Mars, thought about when we might be drawn into the black hole that keeps our galaxy together or seen heaven when we look up at the stars? These silkscreens use a variety of animals to represent life as they ponder these questions and more. Come and let your mind take a journey with these not so scary life forms. Small in size, whose image size is 7 x 7 printed on a 9 x 9 inch sheet of paper, but large in subject matter, which encompasses the nature of the universe. Both the digital as well as the serigraphic prints can be seen and purchased through this website but be sure to see Night Mare live in exhibition at the NAWA gallery if you happen to be in NYC.
