Please contact Andrea Skyberg at 414.229.6310 for a prospectus or Terry at 414.264.6766. Women artists, 18 years or older, are invited to submit work that deals with issues of race and gender: politically, socially, culturally, religiously and aesthetically, to be considered for this exhibition. The exhibition's primary focus is African - American women, but the organizers are interested in including artists of other cultures and races exploring these issues within their own racial, ethnic, or cultural groups. Because funding was received belatedly for a catalog and shipping, and additionally a new community site had to be confirmed to host the exhibition, we are on a tight deadline.
These materials must be received by Dec. 16th, 2005 . Please submit 5 slides or digital images on a CD. The digital images must be submitted as 5" x 7" 300 dpi jpegs. You must submit an artist statement (200 words or less) that refers to your work and the exhibition topic, as well as a current bio, 200 words or less.
If you plan to submit slides or a CD for consideration, please contact Evelyn Patricia Terry before the December 16, 2005 deadline at 414.264.6766 or by email at [email protected].
