In 1999 MSWPS called for submissions by member to design a new logo ‘to adequately voice women artists.’

Long term member Mariette Perrinjacquet was commissioned, from her initial sketches, to design the new logo.

“The concept or general idea behind the design was to honour and promote as well as I could women’s artistic expression.

Playing with a few symbols, positive and negative shapes…and that’s what I came up with!

The left side of the image represents the canvas, the right side a free standing 3D form.

But this is analytical. What is more important is the visual impact of the image, and perhaps the fact that the logo fits into a circle encompassing a harmony and fulfilment we all yearn for.”
