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.

(We are making some changes to our website. If you want to keep up to date with women artists in Australia, please visit our Facebook page)
