Ulster Society of Women Artists USWA

The UWSA plays a very active role in the visual arts in Ulster, organizing exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, outdoor art-trails, gallery visits and other art-related events. Many of these are open to the public.

The Society currently has over 100 members a large proportion of which are professional and semi-professional artists. Representing a wide variety of styles and media, all members have been elected to the society on the basis of their skills as artists.

The objectives of the USWA are:
1. To promote and encourage a high standard of art in Ulster
2. To maintain such a standard in exhibitions that election to Membership would be seen as a mark of distinction.
3. To seek out and encourage talent.

Since its foundation in 1957 by Gladys Maccabe at her home in Mount Charles, Belfast, the UWSA has organized at least two exhibitions per year.
