Call for Entries
Women’s Caucus for Art –District of Columbia Chapter Juried Show:

Believing is Seeing

 In the world of science as in much of life, seeing is believing. In the world of art, more often the reverse is true: believing is seeing. In the studio an artist borrows from her own imagination and vision, whether from a very personal inner world, or from the material world around her. Starting with a blank canvas, a lump of clay, or a found object, and drawing on her own life experience and beliefs, the artist transforms her vision into art, sharing her truth with others. This juried exhibition of WCA/DC members’ work affirms their belief that art can be seen all around us.

The Women’s Caucus for Art - District of Columbia Chapter has issued a call for entries for a juried show that opens on December 2, 2016 at Artists and Makers Galleries in Rockville, MD.  Rebecca Cross, owner of the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Georgetown, will jury the show.

Women artists working in all 2D and 3D media may submit up to three works of art by midnight, November 3, 2016.  Juror notification is on November 16, 2016. The show will run through December 20, 2016 with an opening reception on December 2, 2016 from 6-9pm at   Artists and Makers Galleries, 11810 Parklawn Drive, Rockville, MD (Rear Entrance).

 All accepted work must be wired and ready to hang.  All sculpture must be moveable, 75lb. maximum weight. Pedestals will be provided unless a special type is needed. Upon acceptance there will be a $45 per artist hanging fee to be paid once work is juried into the show.  Non-members must join to have their juried work in the show. The commission for artwork sold in the gallery is 25%. Using this link:  submit up to 3 jpgs, 300dpi, approximately 4” x 6”.  Any work submitted must not have been in a WCA-DC show in 2015/2016.  Artists will be notified of acceptance by email.  Be advised that Artists and Makers Galleries does not carry insurance. Individual artists must self-insure if they want insurance.
