Pen and Brush is the only nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a platform for women in the literary and visual arts by showcasing high-quality, professional work. We believe that art and literature created by women deserves to be recognized and valued on its merit – not judged by the gender of the maker.Our Vision Donate
Our new state-of-the-art facilities will accommodate the exhibition of all forms of visual arts and promote our electronic literary publications under our imprint, P&B Books. We are anticipating the first exhibition and publications in the Spring of 2015.Learn More
Read interviews with curators Rick Kinsel, Joni Evans, Kate Angus, and Carey Salerno in this ongoing series where our curators share their experience and perspectives on the field and their work with P+B. Learn more about the arts and literary professionals reviewing submissions for exhibtions and publications in 2015.
Celebrating 120 years with the acquisition of new space, our new facility is undergoing a complete renovation. When we open our 5,500 square foot space later this year, we will present exceptional work by women to collectors, curators, editors, agents, publishers, and the public.
Carey shares what she has learned throughout her career in publishing and her experience as a poet and a writer. Read on for the first installment of our conversation, including Carey’s thoughts on diversity, e-publishing, and challenges that exist in the industry.
It's my pleasure to share a conversation I recently had with Kate Angus. Here are some of Kate's insights into the need for publishers to support diverse voices, how the Internet has impacted the way we read, and how emerging writers can find success (hint: keep writing!).
With the pervasiveness of gender inequality in nearly every arena, it's heartening to know that there are passionate individuals and organizations out there working hard to affect change. Nonprofit groups like VIDA: Women in Literary Arts are leading the charge, effectively "calling out" those in positions of power to give opportunities to talented women.
This month, Pen and Brush, a nonprofit that showcases work by female artists and writers, is celebrating its 120th anniversary by breaking with its past. The organization, which tries to further women’s careers by introducing their work to the public, gallery owners and curators, is changing its selection process as well as how and where the work is shown.
