Together We Rise: Reclaiming the Female Gaze

Together We Rise: Reclaiming the Female Gaze

This Deadline Expired: Sunday, October 10, 2021

Together We Rise: Reclaiming the Female Gaze is an online exhibition for women artists centered around female empowerment. Though women have historically been underrepresented in the art world, female artists have continued to push back and elevate their voices through art. The essential question guiding this exhibit is: how can we use art to visually communicate our thoughts, beliefs, and experiences in response to the world around us? In this exhibit for women artists, Visionary Art Collective is seeking a wide range of work that responds to this question. Visionary Art Collective is looking for diverse styles, mediums and techniques.

This is a selling exhibition, and all work must be available for sale with a maximum price of $1500 USD. Shipping costs must be covered if work is sold. They do not take any commission on sold artwork. All inquiries regarding artwork in this exhibit will be forwarded directly to the artist.

They will select 10 artists to receive a discount price for their submission of 50% off the entry fee.

The following mediums are accepted: painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, digital, prints, fiber art, collage or installation art.

The guest curator for this exhibit is ArtGirlRising, who actively work to raise awareness about the inequalities that women artists face. Their goal is to spark conversations about the inequalities and to ultimately inspire change and action to help women artists rise to their rightful equal positions in the art world.
