Abiding Courage Exhibition

Entry Deadline: Mon, Feb 10, midnight

WCFA is excited to announce its first national call for art, as well as our partnership with the Shall Not Be Denied initiative to mark an important milestone in women's suffrage -- to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment.

One hundred years ago the US Constitution was amended to ensure individual states could no longer deny women their right to vote. The long struggle to ratify the 19th Amendment brought forward thousands of heroic women who stood up for the first time to demand their rights.

The goal of the exhibition is to bring together history and contemporary artwork to inspire viewers to think critically about the right to vote and to encourage participation in our democracy. Keeping themes in mind, all media are welcome (2D, 3D, abstract, or representational). Follow our Facebook activities!

To ensure we reach a broad range of artists for this important exhibition, we're using the CaFE tool to administer submissions for Abiding Courage, a juried exhibition running March 4 - April 9, 2020. It's a great simple tool, and we're always available to answer any questions regarding its use.

Juror: Jonny Skye, Skye Gallery, Providence, RI

Fee: $40 for Non-Members (1-3 images); $30 for WCFA Members (1-3 images)

Notification of Acceptance: Monday, February 17, 2020

Artwork Dropoff: Wednesday, February 26, 11am-3pm; Thursday, February 27, 11am-3pm and 5-7pm; Friday, February 28, 11am-3pm
