The Monmouth Museum Exhibition, THEN AND NOW, featured Dorothy's recent work, It included 40 contemporary works from NAWA artists, and 15 NAWA artist pieces from 1900 to 1980 loaned by The Zimmerli Art Museum collection at Rutgers University. Dorothy was featured in the recently selected contemporary works. (Her work is also included in the Zimmerli's NAWA Collection from 1988.)


To Quote from The Monmouth Museum:

'The Monmouth Museum proudly celebrates the 133-year history of The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA), the oldest continuing professional organization of practicing women artists in the United States. Established in 1889, NAWA has a unique historical presence, as it was founded by five women artists to provide women opportunities to exhibit their work during a period when women faced great difficulty to display their art publicly.'


The show was juried by three curators: Donna Gustafson (Curator of Modern and American Art at the Zimmerli Art Museum); Marianne Ficarra (representing the Monmouth Museum, and currently a professional fine art appraiser, with experience in both curating and judging NAWA exhibitions); and Jeffrey Wechsler (retired Senior Curator at the Zimmerli Art Museum).


The exhibition, The National Association of Women Artists: Then and Now, demonstrates the continuing presence of this organization with 65 works of art: a selection of 15 works, dating between 1915 and 1980, from the Zimmerli Art Museum’s The National Association of Women Artists’ Collection at Rutgers (established in 1988), in addition to 50 works of art selected from more than 260 submissions by NAWA member artists nationwide, representing the contemporary part of the exhibition.
