Who's who at Advancing Women Artists

Women world-wide band together to support art and conservation. One of the most exciting things about AWA is the connection we create between women artists of the past and modern women. AWA brings together ladies from all nations and ‘walks of knowledge‘ who have decided to join our quest. AWA is rapidly growing, as recognition for ‘our artists‘ becomes more widespread. Supporting art and restoration in Florence means participating in a combination of ‘grand gestures‘ and ‘small efforts‘. Together, we look to both the past and the future—for Florence… and for women around the globe. Together we will reclaim our role in the history of art.
