The Women's Art Association of Hamilton (WAAH) provides a venue for women artists and art lovers to share their appreciation of visual arts in a mutually supportive atmosphere. We welcome you to become involved in our association as an active member and to share your talents, knowledge and expertise by joining one of our committees and by being a volunteer at one of our events.

As an association of artists and art supporters, we are excited to offer various events throughout the year. Our members have opportunities to hear from a variety of guest speakers and artists, attend workshops, visit galleries, participate in exhibitions, excursions and social events. Our members enjoy six monthly “Art Talks” at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, on the third Thursday of the month, at 1:00 pm.

We provide opportunities for networking and expanding your artistic horizons. We inform you on what is going on in our art community and pass on calls for other exhibition opportunities.

Our members receive discounts at local art supply stores and AGH Membership.

On this website you can read our latest newsletter, that is issued quarterly. Members may also display up to six images of their artwork, along with their personal bio on our "Members' Gallery".

Where: 270 Sherman Ave. N
When: May. 1, 2023 @ 10:00 AM

WAAH is looking for volunteers to assist in various capacities. If you are interested in helping out, want to learn new skills – or just want to know more please contact any one of the current board members.

There are opportunities for many different skill sets including communications/publicity, social events, workshops, trips/tours etc. Working on a committee is a great way to get to know more people and be involved in making the organization more vibrant and relevant in the Hamilton community.

I hope you will consider being part of the team. Please think about putting yours – or someone else’s name forward. If you are not sure – or have questions give me a call – we can meet for a coffee and discuss the options.
