Meetings and Programs

Meetings

Artist networking lunch meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month except July and August. The monthly meetings give members time to network and share news of exhibits, accomplishments and opportunities. Women Painters West members and their guests enjoy lunch and interact with a guest speaker.

Guest Speaker Series
Membership in Women Painters West offers the unique opportunity to hear renowned artists, gallery owners and directors speak about their creative process and endeavors in the art world while showing their work. An intimate question and answer period after the presentation provides up-close and personal dialogue with our speakers.

Field Trips
During the year, Women Painters West offers its members exclusive tours of well-known artists’ studios and museum exhibitions. Artist studio visits give members the rare opportunity of exploring an artist’s private workplace. Private tours of exhibitions give Women Painters West members the chance to hear directly from art historians and lecturers about the background of a current exhibition, artist or art movement.
