The Alliance for the Arts invites the public to its opening reception of Changing Direction: National Association of Women Artists on Friday, Jan. 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. The free event features the works of the National Association of Women Artists, as well as light refreshments provided by Jayne Baker. The exhibit will be on display from Jan. 6 – 28.
Members of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) welcome patrons and all visitors to their group exhibition, Changing Direction, at the Lee County Alliance for the Arts. Under the direction of local chapter president, Denise Cormier Mahoney, the exhibition was arranged by the association’s chapter vice president, Muffy Clark Gill. Florida Gulf Coast University professor Morgan Paine, was retained by the chapter to judge and jury the show. Fifty two- and three- dimensional pieces of original artwork from 27 NAWA members from each of its three state chapters – Florida, South Carolina and Massachusetts – were selected by Paine for the exhibition. From these, Paine will award six prizes after judging the show in person.
NAWA is a national not-for-profit organization headquartered in New York City. All members are juried into the organization of female and self-identified female members. Originally founded in 1889 in NYC to create more opportunities for female artists in a male-dominated art world, the association promotes culture and education in the visual arts, creating networking opportunities, and actively exhibits its members’ works.
The Alliance for the Arts is located at 10091 McGregor Blvd., Fort Myers. For more details, call 239-939-2787 or visit online at
