The Women’s Art Society of Montreal was founded in 1894 by two Montreal women with the goal of integrating women into the art world. With the evolution of women’s rights and the fact that many opportunities and avenues of support are now open to female artists, the WASM has moved with the times. However, the tradition of promoting literary, musical and visual arts among women still remains its primary focus. Since 1998 we have invited men into our membership.
