Women in America: A 100 Year Celebration of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment

We’re re-opening the gallery for this OPEN exhibition. We are welcoming participation from artists and poets on the following themes:

1. Art and poetry related to the Suffrage Movement and 19th Amendment
2. Art and poetry related to Women’s Accomplishments over the past 100 years
3. “Americana” themed art (subject to space available)

The show will welcome entries from all regional artists, and hopes to have representation in all art mediums — painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking and photography. In addition, we are welcoming poetry and  “ekphrastic” works — those pairing poetry and visual art where the artists are inspiring each other’s work. The Modesto branch of the American Pen Women will be presenting a special group of ekphrastic works in an online format as well.

The theme of this show may take a wide variety of forms. We are encouraging artists to think beyond portraits of noted suffragists and activists and explore the theme in a conceptual format. While suffrage was a monumental achievement, indigenous populations and women of color didn’t enjoy its benefits until much more recently. So, works may also be tributes to all American women’s accomplishments over the past 100 years. Artists are encouraged to address challenging cultural topics such as the “me too” movement or issues pertaining to women of color. Really, anything celebrating American women will be considered.

To participate please download this form, fill out and email back to Linda Knoll at class.ccaa@gmail.com before June 20.  Women in America prospectus
