Annual Awards

ArtTable’s Distinguished Service to the Visual Arts Award acknowledges and celebrates remarkable leadership in the arts. Its recipients exemplify ArtTable’s dedication to the lasting impact of the visual arts on our shared cultural life. In 2003, as a special gesture to ArtTable and the leading women it honors, Louise Bourgeois created an unnumbered, cast bronze edition to represent the award for Distinguished Service to the Visual Arts. EYE (cast bronze and silver nitrate with a polished patina) is cast each year in commendation to our awardee.

ArtTable’s New Leadership Award recognizes an emerging professional who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and made considerable contributions to the visual art field in the earlier stages of their careers. This award was first introduced as part of ArtTable’s 25th anniversary celebration in 2005. This past year’s award was Seven Square Inches of Water, a limited-edition artwork by Maya Lin created to benefit the “What Is Missing?” project.

ArtTable Day

Friday, April 7, 2023

In 2005, the Mayor of New York City declared April 7 as ArtTable Day, marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of ArtTable’s founding. Over 15 years later, we continue to use this day to celebrate our incredible community of professional women in the arts!

In 2021, many of you gifted ArtTable Memberships to professional women starting out in our field to celebrate ArtTable’s 40th Anniversary. This is something that anyone can do all year round to provide emerging professionals with a national network of leading women in the arts, fostering supportive professional relationships and professional development opportunities. 

Celebrate ArtTable Day all year round!

Give the gift of ArtTable membership!

Even if you don’t have anyone specific in mind to sponsor, we keep a list of individuals who could benefit from ArtTable membership but do not currently have the means to join. We will let you know when your donation has been matched with an individual.

Consider nominating a friend or colleague for ArtTable membership.

Consider supporting ArtTable today. Every dollar counts to help us support women in the visual arts.
