International Deadline: March 14, 2021 – Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our April-May 2021 group exhibition juried by Whitney LaMora.

As the world continues to grapple with an isolated reality at the conclusion of one full year of pandemic conditions, the parameters of how we live and move through the world have drastically changed. While many new physical boundaries have been defined for us, other boundaries were left to be defined. This exhibition considers the magnitude of this particular moment, as well as conceptual dimensions and negotiations of boundaries broadly, and as particularly experienced by womxn and non-binary individuals. We encourage intersectional approaches that include consideration of sexuality, race, class, and disability.
On display April 15 – May 16, 2021.
Woman Made Gallery is a space for Women, Womyn, and Womxn identifying artists from our local community, regionally based, and around the world. We welcome art from all womxn, including trans women and femme/feminine-identifying genderqueer and non-binary artists.
Woman Made Gallery seeks artwork in all mediums. No work may exceed 6’ horizontally or be over 75 pounds in weight unless delivered and picked up by the artist. WMG will refuse receipt of art that is heavier than 75 pounds.

The submission fee for Boundaries is $30. Only one submission may be entered per artist. Each submission requires one artwork, though up to three artworks may be considered per submission.
