Call to Artists “A Woman’s Role”

                               March 3-31, 2017


THEME – “A WOMAN’S ROLE” – mother, lover, warrior, leader, seeker, servant and queen. Over time a woman’s role in society has grown and evolved, but not always with acceptance from society or even resolved amongst other women. In celebration of Women’s History Month we seek art that illustrates a woman’s role in society, celebrating her successes and struggles.

The theme is suggested and not mandatory to exhibit your work.
