Details for the 2023 CLWAC exhibition.

The Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club was founded in 1896 to provide support for women artists. Catharine Lorillard Wolfe was an art collector / philanthropist and the only woman among the 106 original founders of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

In addition to bequeathing her painting collection to the museum, Ms. Wolfe left an endowment to Grace Church in Manhattan to promote “women’s work.” At the urging of Rector Dr. William Reed Huntington and several parishioners, the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club was established in 1896. The purpose at the time was to provide aid, counsel, and exhibition opportunities to young women artists in New York City.

Each year, our opening reception benefits the American Department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art Research Travel Fund.
