Women artists of the west


Established in 1971 by a small group of women artists, the goal of the organization is to support and promote women artists. Initially the focus was on painters of western themes, but WAOW has grown to include women artists throughout the world, and embraces many different styles and diverse subject matter. WAOW provides a network of exhibitions, cooperative advertising, and promotion for its members. The first president was Gloria Bilotta, one of the twelve founders. In 1988, the group decided to expand their western genre focus to include florals, European and American landscapes, equine subjects and wildlife. Source: www.waow.org
