Founded in 1889, NAWA’s mission is to encourage, exhibit, and foster public awareness of visual art created by women in the United States.
Real/Unreal presents works by 21 NAWA member artists, This exhibition will present two opposite sides of the artistic spectrum: precise representational imagery and totally nonobjective compositions. With this visual dichotomy, viewers of the exhibition will not only see the great range of imagery possible in art, but can also appreciate the fundamental qualities that all artistic creation: color, composition, technical proficiency and personal expression. A wide variety of art media is shown, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel and printmaking.
