Upcoming Events


ArtTable was founded in 1980 by a group of professional women in the visual arts to foster greater support, recognition and opportunities among their peers. Today, ArtTable is the leading national non-profit organization dedicated to advancing professional women’s leadership in the visual arts.

Our on-going mission includes educating and informing our members and the general public about significant developments and issues in the visual arts through public panels, 
conferences and talks in addition to mentorship programs for young women newly entering the field and professional development seminars for leadership at all career stages. 



October 23: State of Art/DC3 features 10 presenters who will offer a range of perspectives and ideas about the future of the visual arts in the Washington, DC region. The event is organized by ArtTable, the national leadership organization for professional women in the visual arts and hosted by the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA). This is the 3rd edition of the event, following sold-out sessons in November 2015 and February 2016. Presenations are PechaKucha style, a concise, rapid-fire visual format of 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide. Program intermissions will enable attendees and presenters to connect and extend the conversation. Beverages and light refreshments will be offered.
