Women Painters West, one of the leading Southern California art associations is a non-profit organization that seeks to bring together talented professional women artists in the spirit of friendship, artistic expression, education and philanthropy. With a legacy spanning over 90 years, our goal is as important now as it was when we held our first exhibition in 1921.

Monthly meetings, guest artist presentations, artists' studio visits and museum tours nurture our members' artistic endeavors by placing the creative process at the center of Women Painters West's commitment to share ideas and experiences.

Throughout the year, Women Painters West strives to provide its members with opportunities to showcase their work in a professional manner by collaborating with gallery directors, museum curators and other art exhibitors through competitive juried exhibitions. Independent jurors from outside the organization assure exhibitions of the highest aesthetic standard and diversity.


Women Painters West supports
emerging artists by providing scholarships to exceptional art students to further their education and encourage their creative skills.

In addition, Women Painters West's outreach programs include philanthropic assistance to community art programs.
