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.
