Australian 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.
Erica McGilchrist, OAM, 10.2.1926 - 9.5.2014
The Women’s Art Register wishes to pay tribute to Erica’s extraordinary drive in co-founding the Register in 1975 and acting as its Convenor until 1986. The Register continues to thrive as one of only three such resources for women’s art in the world. Thank you Erica for insisting that women’s art matters.
