Women & Their Work, a statewide visual and performing art organization, has served as a catalyst for new ideas in contemporary art for 35 years. We present more than 50 events a year, including ongoing visual art exhibitions, performances, panel discussions and education programs that inform audiences about the art of our time.

We encourage artists to make ambitious, new work and publish color catalogs to provide information to visitors.

Through our extensive art education program, we bring more than 950 students and teachers to the gallery to experience and create art. Our education program includes free gallery workshops with working artists and in-school performances. In addition, we provide transportation to students from underserved schools and staff support so that their teachers may accompany them.

Currently on view is an annual show that spotlights the range of work and serves as a fundraiser. The Red Dot Art Spree features more than 200 works of art including paintings, photographs, sculptures, drawings and mixed-media works. This show provides an opportunity to begin or expand personal art collections.
