IWD 2020

Women’s Arts Association Wales has been holding open shows of women’s art for more than 30 years in celebration of International Women’s Day, which is on March 8th. These are popular shows and great venues to see some extraordinary art work by the members of the WAAW.

In 2020 WAAW organized three IWD 2020 shows: at Llanover Hall, Cardiff (open to all women), at Art Central, Barry (open to all women) and at Oriel Canfas, Cardiff (open to Full/Associate Members only)

Unfortunately due to Covid-19 restrictions the exhibitions at Llanover Hall, Cardiff and Arts Central Gallery, Barry had to close however you can view both exhibitions below thanks to Sharon Magill and Tracey Harding.
