Celebrating Female Artists: Laura Wheeler WaringMarch is time to celebrate yourself and your fellow women! To celebrate Women’s History Month, we're sharing some extraordinary female artists! This week, meet Lisa Wheeler Waring. Check back each week for a new blog post--and special featured artist.
Laura Wheeler Waring is best known for her paintings in portraiture, but she also painted many beautiful paintings including landscapes and still lifes. She was honored her with a gold medal for the portrait Anne Washington Derry (shown here).
Waring was also very involved in the Harlem Renaissance and worked with various African-American activists.
She even created pen-and-ink illustrations for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's magazine.
