We exist to help create visibility and opportunity for all women artists.
We are tired of walking through museums and galleries thinking: Where are the women artists? Curators, art dealers, collectors, editors, directors, writers, teachers and everyone else who have been excluding us;
HERE WE ARE.
The main purpose of this database is to open the public’s eyes to the underrepresentation of non-male artists and the incredible talent that is left unseen. We are a registered Community Interest Company, created by Liezel Strauss (founder of ArtGirlRising) and developer, Samantha Roberts.

DID YOU KNOW:
- Out of 18 prominent art museums in the U.S. with over 10,000 artists 87% are male, and 85% are white.
- Just 8% of public art in central London was created by women.
- Only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America are women
- Of the hundred most expensive works ever sold, none are by a woman.
We believe by creating this platform we can help shift the numbers. There are no excuses.
