The Women's Caucus for Art, founded in 1972 in connection with the College Art Association (CAA), is a national member organization unique in its multi-disciplinary, multicultural membership of artists, art historians, students /educators, and museum professionals. The Philadelphia Chapter is the oldest chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art, and we strive to create exhibitions that promote activism and global awareness. Our theme "Women" celebrates international perspectives of femininity and the feminine. The work features female icons inspired by various Asian, Latin American, European, North American, and African cultures. The "Women show" offers 2D and 3D mediums including painting, printmaking, photography, collage, sculpture, fiber arts, and assemblage. Exhibiting artists are Qadira Allen, Alison Altergott, Timothea Canny, Ellen Bonett, Gina d'Emilio, Nicole Dul, Marie Elcin, Danielle Ferrell, Pamela Flynn, Joanna Fulginiti, Veronica Gledhill, Lindsey Kilchesty, Bonnie MacAllister, Debbie McCarthy, Meg Meyers, Marcelle Pachnowski, Sonia Sherrod, Rachel Udell, and Michelle Wilson.
