On June 6 the Connecticut Pioneer Branch of the National League of American Pen Women’s Branch’s OWL Award was presented to Old Greenwich resident Carol Dixon.

Ms. Dixon was honored at the opening of the organization’s annual art exhibition.

The branch was founded in 1925 and includes professional women writers, composers and artists in southwestern Connecticut and nearby New York. The League is headquartered in Washington D.C., and is comprised of more than 130 branches and 3,000 members.

Ms. Dixon received the OWL Award in recognition of her “outstanding talent and dedication to the branch,” which she has served as president since 2010.

She has also planned and implemented numerous programs, annual art exhibitions and publicity for the organization.

In addition, she was honored for her many contributions to the community: teaching and serving as chair of the Arts and History Departments at Greenwich Academy, and teaching history, economics and studio art there, as well as art at the Stamford Museum, the Greenwich Art Society Studio School and through Stamford’s Adult Education Program. She has also served the community as guest lecturer, workshop leader, curator, juror, trustee and board member for numerous art and educational organizations.

Best known for her color photography and unique, small-scaled, embroidered collages, which combine traditional and contemporary techniques influenced by a variety of the world’s cultures, Ms. Dixon’s art has won top awards, has been included in many corporate and private collections, and has appeared in 40 one-artist exhibitions and innumerable juried and invitational group exhibitions.
