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 Presents… is a reading series founded by Kate Angus for Pen and Brush. The series supports the work small press editors do in identifying excellent writing, as well as supporting the writing itself, by featuring exciting new work by established and emerging authors. Each month, “Pen and Brush Presents…” features readings by three writers, each one selected by editors at a press, journal, or organization with a strong female editorial presence.

This month, we highlight We're On: A June Jordan Reader, edited by Christoph Keller and Jan Heller Levi, with an introduction by Rachel Eliza Griffiths.
A not to be missed ode to the feminine flow of 25 artists who are diverse and complement each other well enough to say that “King Woman” takes the crown.
Pen + Brush's partnership with ArtLeadHER is deeply rooted in our shared mission to provide professional female artists with a channel for acknowledgment and recognition.
Mashonda Tifrere‘s swanky ArtLeadHER is collaborating with the unique NYC Pen + Brush gallery for an uplifting exhibition.
