Thirty years and still counting

Wow, I can hardly believe we’ve come this far. Thirty years, that’s older than half of our staff!

No, I can believe it. With the support of the Austin community and strong leadership, Women & Their Work has thrived for the last thirty years and is going to thrive for the next thirty.

In the last thirty years we’ve supported thousands of women artists, 1794 of which exhibited in the gallery. We helped bring Laurie Anderson, Betye Saar, Adrian Piper, the Urban Bush Women, Liz Lehrman, Marion Winik, Adrienne Rich, Maxine Kumin, Bebe Miller, Marlies Yearby, Contraband Dance, Pauline Oliveras, Natasha Tsakos, Pat Graney, just to name a few, to Austin. Not to mention all of the Texas and former Texas artists that have shown in the gallery, there are way to many to mention here, but keep coming back to the blog. Throughout the year we’re going to post the highlights from the last thirty years.  And there are a lot!
