LOCATION: Forgotten Works Studio, 46 Bridge St, Brooklyn NY

EVENT TIME: JANUARY 12th 2017, 7:30pm-11pm

OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS SUBMISSIONS:

In 2016, American women face an institutional attack on their basic human rights.  We will not stand quietly by and let this happen.  We are here to fight back.  We invite you to join us on the battlefield.

The artist’s power to communicate social unity and to voice political protest are powerful tools in this fight. We are interested in featuring the viewpoint of female identifying artists and their perspective on culture, politics, and existence in America today.

We have chosen the week before the presidential inauguration to host this event; to provide a space focused on forward movement and female empowerment.

This is an Open Submission.
You  may submit up to 3  works of art for consideration. Mediums may include photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, video with a monitor or projection capability, textiles, etc.
All artwork must be ready to hang.
We ask that your work be no larger than 24inches in any direction. It can be smaller, it can be 3D, but no larger than 24 inches.
We ask you sell your work at one of our set prices between $25 – $200. Increments are as follows: $25, $50, $75, $100, $150, & $200. We want to keep the prices very affordable so that many people in attendance feel they are able to purchase one or multiple pieces in support of Planned Parenthood.
All accepted pieces will be featured in the exhibition at Forgotten Works Studio as well as on the “Battlefield” webpage which will include an artist bio and description of the work.
