Call For Artists
This is a heads-up to North and South Carolina artists. We have two fun (and insightful) shows coming up. Selfie (Jan 6 – Feb. 3, 2024) is a juried 2D art exhibition that explores the psychology of selfies. We are seeking a range of first person photos, paintings, drawings, and mixed media. Entry deadline for Selfie is Dec. 24.
We are also seeking submissions to Girl Power! (Feb. 10 – Mar. 6, 2024), a juried 2D and 3D show that explores the multifaceted dimensions of what it means to identify as a woman today. Open to all genders. Entry deadline for Girl Power! is Jan. 31, 2024. Details – including application information – are posted below. We can’t wait to hear from you! Details and application links for both are posted below.
