National Women’s Art Exhibition


The National Women’s Art Exhibition was held in 1995. 146 galleries, museums and libraries around Australia participated in the event, holding simultaneous exhibitions of work by female artists. The exhibitions, which focused on women’s relationship to the landscape, were held to commemorate the 20th anniversary of International Women’s Year.

The National Women’s Art Exhibition was the ‘brain-child’ of Professor Joan Kerr, who also used the event to launch her book Heritage: the national women’s art book in Canberra.
