Inside the Art
WCA/NH is the New Hampshire Chapter of the Women’s Caucus for Art. It is part of a national organization that promotes the advancement of women in the visual arts through educational programs, networking, and exhibition opportunities.
The Lakes Region Pod of the WCA/NH is a large and active group of artists residing in the vicinity of Meredith, NH. Member Betty Fourney Brown says of her experience in the group: “Members support and encourage each other. Always we are learning, enjoying friendships, and growing as artists.” The group meets once a month to share their new artworks, new processes, and their current inspiration.
