Woman Made Gallery: The Emotional Body

Deadline: February 13, 2009 (ONLINE) & (RECEIVE)

The Emotional Body

Woman Made Gallery
Chicago, IL
May 1 – June 11, 2009

Open to women artists from the international community whose work is concerned with the emotional reality of womanhood. We invite submissions that portray “The Emotional Body” of a woman’s journey in search of the boundaries of body, personality, and strength. We invite works that render “the body” expressively, relying on compositional and figurative dramatizations: works that focus on the complexity and significance of a woman’s journey to emotional independence and works that recognize the richness of her life. Images of up to three artworks plus one detail image per submission if needed. Please include a statement about the submitted work and a $24 entry fee.

Online Entries Submit jpgs of three of your works on our website.
Mailed Entries Mail slides or cd with images of three of your works, completed entry form and a $24 entry fee to Woman Made Gallery, 685 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60642
