The National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington D.C

While in Washington D.C I also went to the National Museum of Women in the Arts. I again saw some amazing art and many works by artist who I idolise and refer to regularly in my studio work. It is a much smaller space compared the National Gallery, and a lot less over whelming.  I was lucky enough to see the mid-life retrospective of Audrey Niffenegger. She is a brilliant printmaker and story creator. I am so glad I was able to see it!
