The Arts have the capacity to inspire, to provoke empathy, and to spark a revolution. We at Pen + Brush have always believed these truths – through more than a century of national and international conflict, and periods of deep social change. Pen + Brush is committed to redoubling our efforts to keep the arts accessible and free from actions that limit, restrict or perpetuate the lack of gender equity and diversity for artists and writers.Our Vision Donate
Pen and Brush is proud to announce that our support of writers and artists is extending through the removal of submission fees. For us, it's all about the art. By eliminating this financial barrier it is our goal to further open up access to our exhibition and publishing opportunities to receive the art, poetry and literature of talented women.

After 122 years of supporting women's literature in New York, Pen and Brush has launched an in-house writing circle. We bring women's writing to the world by bringing the world's editors to them, and now we want to bring you into our cozy new space for the time and community your project deserves.
Graffiti Summer Vacation June 6th – August 5th, 2017. Come in and add to the art and writing on our gallery walls! We will hold a series of writing workshops with Marissa Anne Ayala and graffiti workshops for kids lead by two of our artists, Michela Martello and Josephine Barreiro.
Italian-born artist Michela Martello draws and paints, more often than not, on materials that have previously served some other purpose.
Michela Martello, dipped her paintbrush in Farrow & Ball paint to create life-sized murals at New York’s Pen + Brush Gallery – an organization that promotes gender equality by supporting emerging female artists.
