WCA  Exhibit  Opportunities
Posted on National WCA

Material Witness -- Call for Art The exhibition Material Witness seeks to broadly represent artwork defining our time. This is a national call for art by women. All media is encouraged.Organized by the Georgia chapter of the WCA in collaboration with Agnes Scott College, the exhibit will present the perspective of women artists from across the USA working in a variety of media. Through their art they process the world around them, their work becoming a document of these times.
A panel of three prominent women in the arts will curate the exhibit: artist and curator, Lisa Alembik, artist and educator, Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, gallery owner, Marcia Wood. See website for juror bios and links. http://www.wcaga.org/page/the-jurors Exhibit opens September 26, 2013 at the Dalton Gallery of Agnes Scott College, Atlanta GA. Color catalog. $1500 in awards.
Submissions are accepted online through CaFE, deadline April 1, or by mail, deadline March 15, 2013.
WCA members qualify for discounted entry fee of $30. At checkout use discount code: 2013wca.

Violence - A Juried Exhibition
 Dear Colleagues: Please disseminate this Call for Art. The exhibition is being sponsored by the Philadelphia Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art. Current members of the New York City and Washington, DC Chapters are eligible to submit work.We live in a violent world. Sandy Hook, Nickel Mines and Columbine. September 11 and Oklahoma City. Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea and two World Wars to end all war. JFK, RFK, MLK and Harvey Milk. Lisa Steinberg and JonBenét Ramsey. And the millions of others whose names we've forgotten or have never known.
When is violence justified and when it is not? Are violent acts committed by ordinary people who find themselves in extraordinary circumstances to be judged differently? If nature itself is inherently violent, is human nature any different?
We are seeking artworks that address these complicated questions. They might offer hope; they might scream out in despair. They might be political; they might be very personal.
