NYSWA artists draw inspiration from their precursors such as Gabriel Munter, Helen Frankenthaler, Georgia O’Keefe and Lee Krasner, among others, to bring life and energy to visual form. NYSWA artists, each with her own professional history, have joined together to create exciting theme exhibitions.

The organization, founded in 1925 provided support, comradely and exhibition opportunities for women professionals in a field long dominated by men.

Many of the artists separate color from its descriptive representational purpose and allow it to exist on the surface as an independent element.

Whether seeking simplicity, complexity, clarity, balance or discord, mood or description, color plays a vital pivotal role in each visual artist’s thinking.
