    Deadline: March 20, 2017

    The Woodmere Annual: 76th Juried Exhibition
    June 3-September 4, 2017
    Harry Philbrick, Juror

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 Entries: Resist

    Deadline: May 4, 2017

    It’s all that has been on many of our minds since January 20…or perhaps the evening of November 8. Yet it has also been firmly embedded in our culture/counterculture since the 60s. 
    (And hats off, by the way, to the NYT Magazine, which did a terrific cover treatment of the theme this past Sunday.) 
    So what are the SPECIFICS of this CALL FOR ART? 
    We’re seeking up to 5 works in all media — 2D, 3D, multimedia — that are, for 2D, 48″ or less in combined dimensions (height+width) and 15 lbs. or less, and that remind us that artists always create the path of greatest resistance. 
    Organizing questions include:
    * How does your art inspire people to take stands against demagoguery and prejudice?
    * How does it open minds?
    * How does it unite a community in shared purpose and resolve?
    So why just FIVE WORKS? Well, it’s FREE TO ENTER! 
    All entries must be RECEIVED ONLINE at offthewallgallery@gmail.com. The dates to remember are these:
    * The deadline is THURSDAY, MAY 4. (But you can enter as soon as you would like.)
    * You’ll be notified of the jury’s decisions during the week of May 15.
    * The show runs June 4 through August 4, with an opening on Thursday, June 8. 
    We look forward to some inspiring and provocative entries and…oh, yes…
  • Call for Artists: Turning Red

    Deadline: May 1, 2017


    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
