I’ve just returned from attending the Women Artists of the West (WAOW) 53rd National Exhibition which opened on July 22 and will run through September 15, 2023. This year’s show was held at the Carriage Factory Art Gallery in Newton, Kansas and included several days of activities and events including artist workshops and even horse drawn carriage rides around town.
One of my most recent paintings depicting a beautiful Snow Leopard, titled Solitary Prowl, was juried into the exhibit. Each year WAOW holds an exhibition to showcase a carefully chosen group of that organization’s most talented artists. Now in its 53rd year, WAOW is a select group of approximately 350 women artists whose work encompasses wildlife, old west and contemporary west, ranch and rural life, still life, florals and Native American subjects.
Everything about the exhibit was wonderful including the opening reception. Hundreds of art patrons visited the gallery during the reception, and I enjoyed meeting with them and the other WAOW artists. The gallery management and WAOW staff produced an unforgettable event full of fun, beautiful art and gracious mid-western hospitality.
