WCA is an organization of women artists whose goal has been to educate, promote, inspire and support Gulf Coast women artists. We do this by offering monthly meetings featuring speakers and artists on many different professional levels. We provide a venue for monthly critiques in a friendly atmosphere that inspires our members on their journey as artists. Each year we provide a scholarship to a young women in one of our Gulf Coast colleges or universities often helping to move them forward to the next step in their careers. Each fall we have a WCA retreat that gives us concentrated time for making art and building relationship among fellow members. A high light of each year is a juried members exhibit open to the public with notable cash awards to members. At our holiday gathering this year we collected over $ 500.00 worth of art supplies which we donated to The Ronald McDonald House in St.Petersburg, Florida. We continue to grow in membership as we serve Women Contemporary Artists.
