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.
This call is open to all two-dimensional mediums and styles, Works should be no larger than 5’x5’. Sculpture cannot be accommodated. Please keep in mind that, as the venue is a family- friendly community center, we are unable to exhibit violent or sexually explicit subject matter, as well as any art depicting current political figures.
Approximately 40 works will be juried into the show.
This is a juried exhibition open to members of the DC Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art and other women artists in the Delmarva area, as well as to additional invited artists. We encourage all entrants to join both the WCA and DC Chapter prior to the application deadline via (click membership link).
The exhibition will be juried by Anne Burton, Curator at Black Rock Center for the Arts in Germantown, Maryland. The exhibit is co-organized by Sandra Davis (WCA) and Mary Weiss-Waldhorn (City) and will be held at the Bohrer Park Activity Center.
