Women Painters of Washington is an association of professional artists from throughout the state.
On October 6, 1930 the founding members joined forces to overcome the limitations they faced as women artists and to realize their artistic potential through fellowship.
The original principles that forged a bond among the early founders are as relevant today as they were in 1930. The mission of the WPW is fourfold:
To promote fellowship and goodwill within the organization
To encourage members artistic achievement
To promote the work of members
To foster art appreciation within the community
The group meets monthly, generally at the Seattle Art Museum.
