We offered more than 20 adults art classes each week. Throughout the year, there were 40 kids' art classes, more than 20 artist workshops, 15 exhibitions, and dozens of cultural art-making events for families in our community.

 Your help made that possible. And together we can do even more.

Welcome to The Barn & The Club

This is the website of:

The Woman's Art Club Cultural Center (The Barn)
The Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati (The Club)


The Club was founded in 1892 by 19 women artists, in response to the Cincinnati Art Club’s refusal to accept female members. Today The Club is more than 250 women strong and is the oldest Woman’s Art Club operating without interruption in the United States. A bit of history: In 1992, our centennial year, The Club moved to its first permanent address at the Pendleton Art Center.

Then, in 2006, in order to raise funds to restore the Resthaven Barn in Mariemont as a Cultural Center, The Club created the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati Foundation (The Foundation). The Barn currently provides space for art instruction, art exhibits, artists’ studios, meetings and events. The Barn continues to be maintained and operated by The Foundation as a State of Ohio Cultural Facility serving men, women, and children of the Greater Cincinnati Area.

Tom Post | 2-Day Portrait Workshop + Demo

Written by Marie Smith. Posted in Club Workshops


Tom Post grew up in Ohio and has pretty much been drawing since he was five years old. Graduating with a BFA in Fine Arts from Columbus College of Art and Design, Tom has had a successful career as an illustrator. His favorite form of expression, however, is painting (oils) — portraiture, figurative, and plain air.

Woman's Art Club members enjoyed a portrait painting demonstration by Tom at their October 214 meeting — the idea for this workshop was born then and we're delighted that our new club year is starting off with this opportunity.

Elliott Jordan's "Expressions of the Soul" July 11 - August 2

Written by Lynn Long. Posted in Exhibits

Opening Reception July 12, 1pm - 5pm
Gallery Hours continue weekends 1pm - 4pm


Elliott Jordan brings an intimate look at acquaintances, friends and students he's known in his recent past. Using skills and experiences developed over many years as a professional portrait artist and teacher, Jordan displays his talents in charcoal, pastels, acrylics and oils. His love for travel and diversity in people is coupled with a strong interest in art history and technique. Though tending toward realism, and strongly influenced by expressionism, his core interest is unique character and common humanity.
