Calling Women Artists for two New York City Exhibitions in February

Listed below are two calls for art  from the Women’s Caucus for Art that will be shown in NYC this coming February.  

1.   “Bound"

We are seeking multiple expressions of Bound, which can range from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and psychological to social & political commentary. Show work that explores the concepts of bound and borders—be they internal, external, constructed, imagined, imposed, or embraced and how boundaries define and shape our identities, relationships, ideas and politics. Artists are encouraged to interpret this theme broadly; submit works that have resonance and meaning to you.

2.  Diaspora"

DISAPORA – a scattering, a dispersion, a migration, a loss of homeland. Artists are asked to create original works that examine what it means to be separated from your roots, your center, your power, your ancestors, your community, your culture, your land, your home, your people – real or imagined, physical or metaphorical. Is repatriation or reconciliation possible? Desired? Wide interpretations are encouraged.
