USWA ( Ulster Society of Women artists)

I recieved the exciting newsthat I was selected as an associate member of the USWA (Ulster Society of women artists) this week. There is rigorous submission and voting procedure and this was my second attempt for selection.

It gave me real pleasure achieving another landmark in my artistic life .

I'm looking forward to taking part in the USWA exhibitions which take place yearly.


If you are interested heres more info about the USWA from their website :-


The Ulster Society of Women Artist’s ( U.S.W.A.) was founded by Gladys Maccabe MBE MA (hons) ROI RUA FRSA in 1957. At that time,  there was no art society in Northern Ireland that would accept women as members.



Gladys decided to change the situation!



From the original ten founding members, membership today is one hundred and seven women from all fields of the visual arts. The society holds various exhibitions throughout the year and invites new members annually. Members are elected to the society on the basis of their skills as an artist, through a vigorous selection process which therefore maintains the excellent standard of work within the society.


Objectives of the society :

  • To promote and encourage a high standard of art in Ulster.

  • To maintain such a standard in exhibitions, that membership would be seen as a mark of distinction.

  • To seek out and encourage talent.

Here are my artworks which I submitted this year
