MAEA Women's Caucus Exhibition Call for Submission

It’s not too late to submit work for the 2018 Women’s Caucus juried exhibition! The deadline for entry is extended to Sunday, December 31. The thematic exhibition is comprised of a catalog and 2018 NAEA Convention session during which each artist included in the exhibition gives a brief presentation about the work he/she/they submitted. Seattle artist and exhibition juror Vaughn Bell, in considering the 2018 Convention theme of Art + Design = STEAM has set the exhibition theme, Crossing Borders, Transcending Boundaries. She explains, "This topic invites artistic responses to the idea of border crossing, whether in terms of political borders, personal borders, or the borders between media. How do we cross borders physically, materially, conceptually, or metaphorically? What challenges do we encounter as we attempt to enter into new territory? How can we transcend political, emotional, or disciplinary boundaries? When we do cross these borders, where do we find ourselves?"


    For 2018, all entering artists must be a member of the NAEA Women’s Caucus.

    Submitted work should be relevant to the 2018 exhibition theme.

    Works in all media are eligible for consideration.
