British Women Artists (BWA) was established in 2008 by JoWonder, with the kind help of Peter Blue, as a medium for women artists living and working in the UK to showcase their work.
We are here as a form of poetic resistance in a quest to reach the artists not the administrators - to reach the Zeitgeist.
Historically, there has been a great disparity in art and an even greater disparity for women artists. BWA was set up as a means to extend the boundaries, we are open to artists any nationality working in any part of the UK, but the work must be fine-art. There is a financial colonization in the fine arts, and a shying away from the unknown and the risque. We have the ultimate goal to build an archive of artists that otherwise may pass without any notoriety, instigating debate about, art, politics and society.
A rich vein of visual artists working in the UK whose work is dynamic, sincere, and full of meaning has been uncovered.
