Open to all female identified artists residing in one of the twelve Midwestern States to submit artwork for an open themed exhibition.

Artwork that explores or challenges conceptual and material boundaries is encouraged.
Brenda Oelbaum is a feminist, multimedia, conceptual artist, working in whatever medium best translates the intended message. Increasingly her work has become political and ecologically minded, repurposing objects found, donated or bought on the resale market objects in her artwork. From diet books, to piggy banks and now unwanted seascape paintings, Oelbaum finds inspiration in hunting for the weird and unloved. Buying antiques and collectibles and repurposing them is an ecologically sound practice.
1st place: $300 | 2nd place: $150 | 3rd place: Honorable Mention
The Application Fee for this exhibition is $30 for up to three images of work.
