American Women Artists is pleased to announce the finalists for the 17th Annual National Juried Competition, to be exhibited at the  Addison Art Gallery in Orleans (Cape Cod), MA this summer. 

 Over 350 associate members applied with over 900 entries of work. Our selection jurors for 2014 were very impressed with the high quality of work to review.  Their task was not an easy one; ultimately only 60 artists go on as finalists in the National Juried Competition Exhibit at the Addison Art Gallery from August 15-September 15, 2014.

We thank each and every Associate Member who entered AWA's National Juried Competition.  The work entries were truly a testimony to the great talent and skill evident in American Women Artists.

 Congratulations to the 60 Finalists: 

  Fifty paintings and drawings and ten sculptures will be displayed in the 17th Annual National Juried Competition Exhibition at the Addison Art Gallery this summer.  Jammey Huggins of Seminole will be among those.  Her bronze sculpture " Bearer of Gifts", a Raven Vessel, was chosen for this national exhibit.

As American Art Collector Magazine recently observed, AWA members are "women of distinction," representing some of the very best painters and sculptors working today. The Addison Art Gallery is pleased to be the only Massachusetts gallery ever to have been chosen to present this important show. National Juried Competition and Member Show through September 15.
