San Francisco Women Artists Gallery

A presence in the San Francisco arts community since 1887, San Francisco Women Artists (SFWA), a nonprofit (501(c)(3) organization, remains committed to the transformative power of art on our culture, on our selves. By increasing the representation of women in the arts and by outreach and encouragement of aspiring young artists, we remain true to our mission and legacy. Today, more than ever, we are in need of the unique power of art to recreate unifying bonds among all people by imagining, reflecting, and expanding the shared human experience. SFWA welcomes all genders to our organization who support our mission.”
