Ladies First History/Tour

Ladies First is located in a beautiful area of the St. Lawrence Valley. Stop by, we're downtown!

Early American women artists came to their careers not by choice but by necessity. Widowed or maiden ladies would use their creative skills not only in the home arts but as portrait painters. These itinerant female painters would travel from farm to farm working, on commission, to produce visual images of land, home, and hearth.
