Lifting the Sky: Elevating the Work of American Women Artists

AWA is pleased to announce our 2021 National Online Juried Exhibition, Lifting the Sky: Elevating the Work of American Women Artists. AWA annually organizes a museum show as a part of our 25 in 25 Initiative; however, due to COVID restrictions, AWA has decided to host a National Online Juried Exhibition in 2021. AWA is committed to providing women artists with museum exhibition opportunities and will be offering two juried museum exhibitions in 2022.

Lifting the Sky offers an array of awards, such as a $10,000 Grand Prize and a gallery show at the Phoenix Zoo’s Savanah Gallery, as well as other cash and merchandise awards. The show will feature 150 representational and abstract works, including paintings, drawings, and sculpture. This national online juried exhibition is open to all AWA Members in good standing.
