OPEN CALL for NYC Artist: 2021 Fall Season Art Gallery





The Juice Box’s October Black aims to be an educational and creative resource anthologizing the soul of the vast diversity within Blackness. This is to engage a diverse public in the exploration of the resilience and contoured beauty of “Black”. October Black seeks to provoke memorable, immersive artistic thought through offering art rich in African diasporic history, traditions and experiences. October Black also seeks to offer artists (both visual and performing arts) an opportunity to have their work actualized.


Art submissions must speak to the heart and soul of the Black experience by emphasizing its diversity and complexity. Artwork must also have an overture of hope and optimism as expressed in the “triumphs of our experiences”. This exhibit’s mission is to inspire and curate the Black artistic narrative through innovative fine art techniques. Preference will be given to artist who:

  • NYC resident,
  • Identify as a Black woman, 
  • Teaching Artists,
  • Arts based advocates and/or involved in civic engagement
  • Rising Artist, who have not had their first solo exhibit
  • Artwork with Afrofuturistic undertones

Translucent Souls




Art Mums United, a global platform celebrating womxn creatives and motherhood is excited to announce a call for art for an international online exhibit “TRANSLUCENT SOULS” curated by Ekaterina Popova!


“Translucent Souls” are about visual artists telling their stories. We use words, but often the most important things remain unspoken. They are transferred onto a canvas, paper, photograph. They are taking shape in a sculpture or installation.

But can you really see the soul of an artist? Stay silent, watch closely and enter our world.

This online exhibit is a celebration of our abilities to express all while saying nothing.


About the guest curator:

Ekaterina Popova is an artist, writer, coach, the founder of Create! Magazine. Kat loves discovering and supporting new artists, sharing her artworld experiences, and chatting with like-minded creatives on the podcast The Create! Podcast. 

Ekaterina Popova was born in Vladimir, Russia. After moving to the United States, she fell in love with painting and received a BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including The Painting Center in New York, The Trenton City Museum, Delaware Contemporary, The Boxheart Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery, and more.

Popova has been featured in multiple blogs and publications, including Aesthetica, The Jealous Curator, DPI Magazine, Friend of The Artist, Iceview, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
