As we gear up for this year’s Gala honoring an outstanding woman artist – our 2011 honoree is Carolee Schneemann– I find myself thinking back on the amazing artists we have celebrated in the past.

2008 honoree Judy Pfaff holds a special place in my artistic heart. She is at once bold and unassuming, finding what captivates her and using it propel her artwork with a fierce joy. You can get a nice feel for Judy, a self described painter, printmaker, sculptor, engineer, mechanic, welder & pyromaniac, in this short video from the series Framing Sculpture produced by the Sculpture Center in New York City

Join us this year in honoring two outstanding women and to celebrate the 37th year of the Women’s Studio Workshop!

Enjoy a fabulous day at Mohonk Mountain House, New Paltz, New York! Gala guests are welcome to come early and tour the historic grounds of this 142 year old National Historic Register resort. When dinner time arrives the chefs from Mohonk will prepare the finest of Hudson Valley’s seasonal bounty. We will offer a few amazing prizes for you to bid on in our auction and, most importantly, 100% of the auction revenue will help sustain the work of WSW, funding residencies for woman artists.
