Women in the Arts Magazine

Abstract painting features translucent, wave-like turquoise, aquamarine, and fuchsia washes mingled with red lines and hard-edged, matte-pink sinuous shapes bounded by blue and green scales. Other details resolve into a human hand, tree-sprigged mountains, and craggy branches.
NMWA’s magazine, Women in the Arts, amplifies our mission by publishing articles on the collections and special exhibitions, artist interviews, highlights of museum history and achievements, a calendar of events, and more.
