Eligibility:

In this time of isolation and confinement – when we can often see only a portion of another’s face – we are creating this juried exhibition to celebrate faces – and the people behind them. We would also like to examine the ways in which people mask themselves or masquerade. We are looking to define this genre as broadly as possible: self, other, representational, abstracted, likeness, current, past, psychological, emotional…

We are interested in all forms of mark making; and all media are welcome. The show will be juried by Dr. Kryssi Staikidis, Professor of Art and Design Education at Northern Illinois University. The exhibition will run from Oct 28 thru Dec 19, 2020. 

Deadline: 
09/26/2020

Fee Detail: 
Entry fee: $40 for one to three images. $10 for each additional image (lower charge for students — High school or college students can pay a reduced fee of $25 per 3 entries with $10 for each additional entry (Please include copy of Student ID)).

Eligibility:

VIRTUAL EXHIBITION DATES: October 9-31, 2020

FINAL ENTRY DEADLINE: September 24, 2020 | 11:59 p.m. CDT

NOTIFICATIONS: September 30, 2020

JURORS: Karen Gutfreund + Sherri Cornett | Gutfreund Cornett Art

Exhibition Description: With What are You Voting For, we ask — in this upcoming election year, what are the issues that will drive you to the polls? As the United States becomes more isolated from other countries due to its own policies and the current partisan political landscape, the lives of its citizens become more difficult and even dangerous through the erosion of social, health and environmental policies and even common decency. There is so much at stake in the November 2020 elections and there are so many issues that polarize and define us: racism, Black Lives Matter, women’s rights, abortion, the ERA, intersectionality, power, privilege, the Covid19 pandemic, masks, the climate crisis, unemployment, education, health care, jobs, the economy, voting, surveillance, privacy, constitutional rights . . .

With this exhibition, we ask you to share your voice and your vision, and to respond to the issues above in relation to policies, decisions, laws, protests, your experience, and attempts at civil dialogue and protest. Consider our democracy and the debate over freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom to choose to live as you wish. Whether you lean to the right or lean to the left, show us what you think through art that reflects and addresses these complex socio-cultural issues. Art submissions can range from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and include social and political commentary.

Open to women-identified and non-binary artists from the local, national, and international community, Woman Made Gallery is seeking art that illustrates the issue(s) that will determine how they cast their votes this fall. This will be an on-line only exhibition, viewable on Woman Made Gallery’s website and social media channels.

Co-Jurors: Sherri Cornett + Karen Gutfreund | Gutfreund Cornett Art is a curatorial partnership that specializes in creating exhibitions in venues around the U.S. on themes of “art as activism” to stimulate dialog, raise consciousness and create social change. https://www.gutfreundcornettart.com/about-us.html
