Australian Women's Art Register
Welcome to Women's Art Register
The Australian Women's Art Register was established by artists in 1975 to record and promote the work of Australian based women artists.
The Register now holds a collection of national significance with images dating back to 1840.
Our documentation of the cultural heritage of Australian women artists and women's art practices is being used world wide by public organisations, universities, teachers, students, curators, artists and the general public.
How to Support Us
Register is run by a group of volunteers who complete all tasks from
maintaining the archives,
to creating catalogues, fliers and the Bulletin, plus organising special events like occasional exhibitions and artist talks.
