Women Painters

WOMEN PAINTERS is an education-oriented archive of contemporary women painters aimed at promoting excellent women artists and generating more equality in today’s art world. The aim is to make professionals in the art industry aware of all the high quality work that women artists create and to let women artists offer mutual support to one another.

The goal of the archive is to encourage the contemporary art scene (galleries, museums, kunsthalle, press, publishing houses) to include more paintings by women artists. The current contemporary art market and institutional collections are still biased in favour of male painters.

The project is very much inspired by our muse Reese Witherspoon who founded Hello Sunshine – a media company that puts women at the centre of every story they create and celebrate.

Women Painters spotlight where women are now, underlines female authorship and takes the audience around the world to make a wide audience aware of the brilliance of women contemporary painters.
