Women’s Art League of Akron
Wine & Cheese Reception September 2, 5:00 – 7:30pm
In 1933 twenty women gathered together to form what is now known as the Women’s Art League of Akron. The women initially formed the society to help skilled women artists stuggling for recognition due to gender. Now, 90 years later, they are still a strong presence in the women’s art field. The original mission of the group continues to fund and award art scholarships to female high school seniors continuing their art education.
Members today create in a large variety of mediums. Today members paint in oils, acrylics, watercolor, pastels, colored pencils, graphite and mixed media as well as fiber art, photography, sculpture, collage, printing, and ceramics. Their work varies from realistic to abstract.
We hope you have an opportunity to come in and view all of the beautiful artwork. For any questions, you can call the gallery at 330-650-2800.
