Press Release: 2011

Six Summit Gallery is proud to present Connecticut Women Artists Invitational Exhibition.  Selected CWA members and council represent some of Connecticut's finest women artists in a group show of various mediums.


For over three quarters of a century, Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. has provided a forum for women's artwork and continues to emphasize the importance of art in today's society.  Each CWA member possesses a wealth of both knowledge and artistic ability.

Connecticut Women Artists, Inc. was founded in 1929 when thirteen women artists exhibited at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford. Since exhibition opportunities for women were rare at that time, these women started a society of female artists with the encouragement of Museum director Mr. A. Everett Austin, Jr. This organization currently has over 300 active members.

While opportunities for women have improved since 1929, there is still a need for our existence, and much for us to do for today's women artists. We present one open juried show and one members’ juried show each year at varying gallery locations throughout the state. Jurors are drawn from among the most talented and significant women in the field of visual arts. The artists, educators, and curators who have worked with us are all outstanding women in their fields, and have made important contributions to the art world.


Six Summit Gallery is proudly working  with Ivoryton Playhouse in celebrating their 100th Anniversary.  The gallery  will be open during all the special events and is visible from the front steps of the Playhouse.
