Juried Art Exhibition
September 11-November 16, 2020.
The City of Gaithersburg and the Washington Women’s Art Caucus invite women artists to submit work for a juried exhibition entitled “Why I Vote.” This exhibit commemorates the one-hundredth anniversary ratification of the Constitution’s 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote while exploring the contemporary topics that galvanize women voters, such as climate change, immigration, education and women’s rights. “Why I Vote” invites artists to share the ideas and convictions that drive them to the polls and helps to shape political outcomes across the United States.
The exhibition is juried by Anne Burton, Curator at Black Rock Center for the Arts in Germantown, Maryland. The exhibit is co-organized by Sandra Davis (WCADC) and Mary Weiss-Waldhorn (City of Gaithersburg) and will be held at the Bohrer Park Activity Center.
Juried Virtual Art Exhibition

The Women’s Caucus for Art of Greater Washington, DC invites members of the National Women’s Caucus for Art to submit artwork for a juried online exhibition entitled "See My Color," WCADC’s Social Justice Art Exhibition. "See My Color" will explore artists' relationships with racial injustice, police brutality, and criminal justice reform through visual art. The show aims to confront the current social injustices surrounding the deaths of people of color in the United States by law enforcement, as well as systemic racism as a whole. “I don’t see color” is no longer an acceptable response. Proceeds from this exhibit’s entry fees will fund an Art Scholarship to a Brown, Indigenous,or Person of Color (BIPOC) Art student.
