Making HerStory 6
Call for Entrants:
“Image of the Dreamer Makers”
The Art with Joe Series at Peace & a Cup of Joe Café, with the Thickart Collaborative, in conjunction with “Making HerStory 6: the era of our dreams,” presents “Image of the Dream Makers,” a pictorial celebration of women in the arts.
Making HerStory celebrates the vast and diverse forms of creativity offered by women artists. This year’s focus is found in a renewed energy among many of the artists in the Making HerStory family. HerStory 6 is about collaboration, growth, and sustainability. “Image of the Dream Makers,” celebrates the women artists who contribute to the fabric of our history through their creativity. This exhibition is unique in that it celebrates women in all forms of art—not just those who create 2-D work. Its focus is on the women who create the art, not just the art itself. Women artists will be celebrated from all genres in this exhibition: visual art, literary arts, culinary arts, music arts (signer, songwriter, producer, etc), theater arts (playwright, actress, director, light tech, etc), and the list goes on and on. If this call reaches you and you think you’re an artist, you probably are.
We are seeking electronic submissions of individual “self-portraits.” Self-portraits can be traditional self-portraiture, images taken by another, or a graphic. Images should be submitted in JPEG format, preferably 300dpi. Portraits should date no further back than 2009.
Exhibition dates are March 4 – April 16, 2011. As part of “Making HerStory,” there will be a Tea to celebrate this exhibition on Saturday April 2, 2011 at Peace & a Cup of Joe.
Interested participants shall submit an expression of interest of up to three (3) JPEGs (a resolution of at least 300 dpi prefered) of Portraits to email@example.com. The curator will select one image for use in the exhibition. Entrant should also fill out and return the attached form with biographical data. There is NO FEE to participate in this celebration. Portraits are for exhibition purposes only and will not be for sale.
Expressions of interest must be received by February 11, 2011 to be considered. However, early entry is encouraged.
