Wilhelmina Cole Holladay’s idea for NMWA’s State and International Committees evolved at the same time her concept for the museum itself evolved, and was, in fact, an integral part of her model for the museum’s structure. Georgia was one of the first states contacted (1985), and was one of the first to respond. Atlantans Jean Astrop, Eleanor Ridley, and the late Vee Adair and Ellie Atuk quickly put together a core of dedicated women from throughout the state, and within months a board was formed and the organizations first event was held. read more
Women to Watch is an exhibition program, held every two to three years, developed specifically for NMWA’s national and international outreach committees. Each of these exhibitions features emerging and underrepresented women artists from the states and countries in which the museum has outreach committees.
Women to Watch 2020 is the sixth installment of NMWA’s exhibition series that features emerging or underrepresented artists from the states or countries in which the museum has outreach committees. It will be presented in NMWA’s temporary exhibition space on the second floor, and will be on view from mid-June through mid-September of 2020.
The exhibition will focus on the transformation of paper into complex works of art. Paper is a ubiquitous medium that is made from a variety of materials, and the artists represented by the national and international committees in Women to Watch will exemplify this variety of production.
