The Latest from American Women Artists

American Women Artists is thrilled to announce our 2021 National Online Juried Show, Lifting the Sky: Elevating the Works of American Women Artists. As the uncertainty of COVID continues, AWA has decided to host an all-virtual exhibition year. This online exhibit will take the place of our 25 in 25 museum show (postponed to 2022) and will be open to all levels of membership. The show offers an array of awards, such as a $10,000 Grand Prize and a gallery show at the Phoenix Zoo’s Savanah Gallery*, a gallery show at the Principle Gallery**, as well as other cash and merchandise awards. Lifting the Sky will feature 150 representational and abstract works, including paintings, drawings, and sculptures.

The juried exhibition prospectus is available through Online Juried Shows HERE.
