Rosemary Sloggatt, an art teacher at Saddle Rock Elementary School, will soon become a member of the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), after facing a competitive, juried selection process.
The induction ceremony, which will be held on Nov. 9, at the Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea, also includes a new members’ exhibit at the NAWA Gallery (15 West 39th Street, NYC). The exhibit will remain up until Nov. 29.
Sloggatt will have three pieces of art— “Awakening,” “Déjuener,” and “Smoke”— on display at the new members’ exhibit.
NAWA is the oldest women’s fine art organization in the country, open to all women artists 18 years of age and older who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. There are three categories of membership: regular juried, associate, and student artists.
NAWA describes itself as “a vibrant community of professional women artists that strives to support its members, and women artists at large, through exhibitions, programs, and education.”
