One of the oldest women's professional art organizations in the country, the Athena Art Society began in 1903 at the Toledo Museum of Art in Ohio to assist and encourage women in all branches of the fine arts. Athena provides local art awards and scholarships for women, and it stimulates local community participation through leadership and partnerships with other art organizations. Their calming representational and abstract images, landscape scenes, and figures evoke memories and feelings, reflecting Visions of Serenity. Members work in all media, including: painting, drawing, pastel, mixed media, photography, ceramics, sculpture, glass and fiber art.
