About: 2012 marks a milestone for the Women’s Caucus for Art. The national organization is celebrating its 40th year anniversary of recognizing and celebrating women in the arts and their achievements. The St. Louis WCA sponsored Contemporary Women Artists XVI Exhibition will coincide with this theme of longevity. It has been 32 years since the inception of the Contemporary Women Artist Exhibition; it is the oldest running exhibition in our area that focuses on the wealth and breadth of work by women artists.

About the Juror: Beverly Buchanan
Buchanan has had a long and varied artistic career. Her early sculptures were poured concrete and stone. She works in a variety of media, focusing on southern vernacular architecture, which is her main subject. She is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, a Pollock-Krasner Award, and two National Endowments for the Arts Fellowships. She was a Georgia Visual Arts honoree, a recipient of an Anonymous Was a Woman Award, and was honored by the College Art Association Committee for Women in the Arts. In 2011 Buchanan received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Women’s Caucus for Art.
