Open to members of the Women Caucus for Art Members, Nationwide.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing 
women (womxn, womyn, wimmin) the right to vote. This gives us pause to consider where we’ve come, where we are and where we’re going as women and artists. Much has been achieved with the recent emphasis on women artists of the past and the spotlight on contemporary women artists.

This show will feature women in the arts expressing ideas about the experience of women through time and today. What is the unique voice of women; the feminine, and the sacred feminine in art? Show us your visual voice and vision of the power of women’s past, present and future in society and in the arts. 

It is open to interpretation through all styles and media except video and performance.

Maximum framed size for 2 D work: 7.5’ h x 3.5’w
Maximum weight for 2 D or 3 D work: 50 lbs.
