Members of Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) are invited to submit work for a Juried Members’ Exhibition, Feat to Fire: Celebrating 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage. The exhibition will be held at the Sanchez Art Center’s East Gallery in Pacifica, California, January 10 - February 9, 2020. Entries may be submitted online August 18 - October 7, 2019.

Theme: The year 2020 marks 100 years of Women’s Right to Vote in the U.S. The American suffragette story, while ultimately successful, is not without failures and criticism. Now, 100 years later, we are experiencing a marked awareness of and spread towards social equality and related issues across genders, ethnicities, beliefs and preferences. Women Eco Artists Dialog (WEAD) is a strong example of women creatives coming together to share and provide opportunities for female identified artists working with ecological and social justice content. In this regard we are holding this Feat to Fire. That is, we are employing art as a means to fulfill the promise of having our voices count.

This call seeks works which demonstrate how contemporary female identified makers are using art as a means to affect change and have their voices heard.

MediaThis venue is most suitable for wall hung and pedestal displayed works.
