One of the longest, continuously exhibiting women’s art groups in the United States, Petticoat Painters was formed in 1953 to showcase the talents of female artists at a time when women had trouble getting their work exhibited.
The group is limited to 20 Sarasota area professional artists, and prospective members are carefully considered after screening for artistic integrity and exhibition experience.
