This exhibition is in honor of Women’s History Month. Much is missing from history from the feminine perspective as so are many of the accomplishments and contributions of women to culture and society. As a woman artist, what do you have to say from a female perspective? What would you like heard? What issues are important to you as a woman? How does living in global patriarchy make you feel? Express these sentiments through your medium before there is a need to roar!

Paint it, digitize it, draw it, create it with fiber, even sculpt it. This is an all-media exhibition, however, whatever you submit must be wired and ready to hang on a wall. No 3-D work can be accepted at this time unless it is able to hang on a wall. Maximum size is 48” on the longest edge and the maximum depth is 10″.
