Women's Art Register


We are all keeping an eye on the evolving situation regarding COVID-19 and we share your concern for the health of our local and broader communities. ⠀

We also acknowledge the huge impact this event will have on artists, already vulnerable to precarious economic conditions, as many events are cancelled and casual/contract employment dries up.

The health and wellbeing of our members, volunteers and community is our top priority, therefore our office in Richmond is now closed to our regular volunteer sessions and to general enquiries. City of Yarra has advised that Richmond Library is closed until further notice, therefore there is no access to our duplicate archive in the public library area during this time.

Our scheduled events over the next four months have now been postponed. Further updates will be conveyed via our member e-news and social media community.

You can still keep in touch with us via our Contact page, direct email and our social media communities.

We wish everyone the best of health and wellbeing during this difficult time.

The Women’s Art Register is Australia’s living archive of women’s art practice (cis,non-binary and trans inclusive) and a National, Artist-Run and Not-for-Profit community and resource.

Assessed as a ‘Collection of National Significance’ through the Heritage Collections Council in 2009, this unique archive houses the images, catalogues, posters and ephemera of over 5000 Australian and International artists.

Since 1975 the Women’s Art Register has provided an inclusive, independent platform for research, education, advocacy and support for its members and the Arts, Education and GLAM sectors, enhancing the status of women artists and addressing issues of equity, professional practice and cultural heritage.
