The Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA)
The WCA is a group of women artists interested in recognizing, supporting and promoting women artists, women art teachers, historians, critics, curators and writers, performance artists and women craft experts, to help educate and engage the public with art and art activism for the betterment of society. Without art there is little hope, and without women, there is no life.
The WCA Colorado Chapter (WCA-CO)
Our mission is to create community through art, education, and social activism by:
• supporting women artists
• creating leadership opportunities
• offering exhibition opportunities Welcome any new and potential members.
We are the local chapter of the national organization of the Women's Art Caucus. We are currently forty-four member women artists. We meet once a month at our board meetings and at social events organized by our board throughout the year. At our monthly meetings we plan events, exchange ideas, encouraging and offering support to one another in our artistic ventures. We collaborate on art projects and organize art exhibits for our members. Please visit our Events page for most recent exhibits and events and Facebook to stay in touch with the latest news.
Membership is open to all women artists and to men of consciousness about equality in the arts and recognition for the talents and efforts of women artists that has often gone unacknowledged in the mainstream. The benefits of membership are many, including nationally held juried exhibitions, an annual convention held in conjunction with the College Arts Association, and networking with artists all over the country as well as internationally. The national organization also honors women in the arts with the prestigious Life Time Achievement Awards, held during the annual convention.
