March 31 -“Who’s Going To Stop Me?” Open Call Submissions

“Who’s Going To Stop Me?”

Open Call
Submissions due by Wednesday March 31, 2021 by 4pm.

 

Roxbury Arts Group invites artists to submit work to an Open Call exploring the changing roles of women for an upcoming exhibition, “Who’s Going to Stop Me?,” which opens at the Walt Meade Gallery of the Roxbury Arts Center on Saturday, May 15, 2021. The deadline for the Open Call submissions is 4:00p on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. For more information visit roxburyartsgroup.org or contact Samantha Nick, Grants & Community Coordinator, at community@roxburyartsgroup.org and 607.326.7908.

Throughout history, throughout a lifetime, and even throughout a day, the roles and perceptions of a woman have, and continue, to drastically change. From mother, caregiver, healer, leader, and warrior, to victim, scapegoat, and target. Women are boundary-pushers, commanders, and glass ceiling breakers. We hope artists will capture the complexities of what it means to be a woman, and are invited to use personal experiences in their work and share them with our audience. Show us where you have been, where you are, and/or where you’re hoping to go.

Artists can submit up to three pieces for consideration by completing an application through the Submittable here with a $20 fee. Fees will be waived for emerging artists. More information and relevant links can be found under the artLINX tab at roxburyartsgroup.org or by emailing Samantha Nick, Grants & Community Coordinator, at community@roxburyartsgroup.org. The deadline for “Who’s Going to Stop Me?” Open Call submissions is 4:00p on Wednesday, March 31, 2021 with delivery of accepted pieces to be between April 13 – 30, 2021.
