Reclaiming My Time - call for art
Due Jul 29 2019

The higher up you go in the art world, the whiter and more masculine those getting paid are. Statistics show that the disparities that plague other industries, causing women to hear 80 cents to a man’s dollar, also lock women, and particularly women of color or and women with disabilities, out of opportunities to advance their creative careers. To do our parts to counteract these disparities, VAE and the National Humanities Center are dedicated our fall 2019 exhibition to a survey of female artists in the regional South. Reclaiming My Time is a juried exhibition that is open to any femme artist residing in the 11 states that comprise the regional South: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Reclaiming My Time is open to any living artist. A maximum of 2 works of any medium, per artist may be submitted. Two and three-dimensional entries will be accepted. Work must be original and completed in the last 2 years. No copies, mechanical reproductions, molds or kit work will be accepted. Visual Art Exchange reserves the right to exclude work due to size or special requirements. Entries must be hand delivered to the gallery or mailed in a returnable container.

VAE does not exhibit or financially support work that co-opts the story of a community without representation from that community acting in a decision making role.
