The Woodmere Annual: 76th Juried Exhibition
June 3-September 4, 2017
Harry Philbrick, Juror
Woodmere Art Museum invites artists to submit work that contends with the importance of art in an era of heightened political uncertainty. Work in all media addressing contemporary challenges to our civil liberties, moral fabric, social compacts, political institutions, and environment will be considered by juror Harry Philbrick. Philadelphia’s Quaker roots give resonance to the phrase “Speaking truth to power.” Work reflecting the conviction that the truth is beautiful, elusive, confounding, and eternally important will be privileged.
The exhibition will feature works in a wide variety of media from artists living within 50 miles of the Museum.
The exhibition will be accompanied by an illustrated digital catalogue. Recent examples of Woodmere digital exhibition catalogues can be found by following the link below.

Call for Artists: Turning Red
Artists of Pennsylvania respond to the 2016 election
Exhibition Dates: June 10 – July 29, 2017
Pennsylvania is considered a swing state though it had not voted for a republican in a presidential election for 28 years, until now. For artists living in Pennsylvania, that means a shift in perception as to the political and philosophical identity of our state. With reports that our nation is currently more polarized than any time since the civil war, we are becoming aware that the divide touches on all aspects of our lives, not only how we govern, but how we view our citizens and neighbors. Artists have always used turmoil and emotion as inspiration and fuel for creation. And it has often been said that the best work comes from the atmosphere in which we are now immersed. Turning Red seeks to give a platform to the voices of Pennsylvania artists who are investigating and commenting on the news of the day, varying opinions, and strong emotions surrounding the 2016 election.
Eligibility: Open to all artists who reside in Pennsylvania. Open to all media, work must be created in 2016 or 2017. This exhibition invites artists of all political opinions to submit works created in response to the 2016 election and the new administration’s philosophies and policies. Artists of color, artists with disabilities, artists of non-Christian faith, artists from immigrant or refugee communities, and other artists who feel vulnerable or marginalized as a result of our current political climate are strongly encouraged to submit.
Fee: $25 for 3 entries
Deadline: April 30, 2017
WANDERING CURVES – THE CURVE CHANGES EVERYTHING
Because everyone had so much fun that last time we ran this theme, we decided to challenge you once again to submit images that, rather than focusing on a particular subject, or color palette, have a curve, or curves, as a critical element. The possibilities are endless, from winding roads to automobile trim to the curvaceous form of an elephant’s trunk when feeding. And don’t forget the round edge of grandpa’s bald head or a cold refreshing scoop of ice cream sitting atop a cone. Curves are all around us all the time. Capture them as a dominant element of your images and send them in. Have fun with this.
Grand Prize: One photographer will receive $750. The image will be part of the New York gallery show, the NYC4PA Online Gallery and the exhibition catalog. It will be featured on the home page of NYC4PA website.
