About UK Friends of NMWA

UK Friends of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (“UK Friends of NMWA”)  supports the mission of NMWA by raising awareness of contributions by women in the UK to the arts, past and present. We:

  •  organize monthly events highlighting the accomplishments of women artists.  Our events cover contemporary as well as historical women artists and include discussions with artists, private visits to museums, galleries and private collections, studio visits and lectures
  •  publish a monthly e-newsletter presenting the charity’s events as well as an extensive listing and description of current exhibitions featuring women artists throughout the UK
  •  help UK-based art by women achieve international recognition with NMWA’s Women to Watch programme.


NMWAbuildingUK Friends of NMWA was established as a UK charity in 2006.  It is part of a growing international network supporting the mission of the National Museum of Women in the Arts.  Located in Washington, DC, the Museum brings recognition to the art by women of all periods and nationalities by exhibiting, preserving, acquiring and researching art by women, and by educating the public about the women’s accomplishments.
