Deadline Extended to November 1

Deadline Extended to November 1

The Women's Caucus for Art is extending the deadlines for two national juried exhibitions Equilibrium: Art for a Changing World and WCA Best of 2014. The new deadline is November 1 at 11:59 pm, your time zone. WCA has secured two well-respected Chicago galleries that have a history of showcasing women's art. With special tour buses to take visitors to the opening receptions, we expect a large turn-out at both galleries during the February 2014 WCA Chicago Conference. Don't miss this opportunity to exhibit your work this winter!
Equilibrium: Art for a Changing World

Equilibrium: Art for a Changing World seeks to explore the tensions, demands and challenges inherent in living in a rapidly changing world. We are looking for art in all genres and media to express the multiple expressions of balance or its absence, which can range from abstract to representational, psychological to social, whimsical and poetic to political commentary. Artists are encouraged to interpret this theme broadly.

The 18 artists whose work is accepted for the calendar will receive a free copy of the WCA Best of 2014 Calendar. You may submit work for consideration for the calendar only, if you do not or cannot ship the work to the gallery. This work for the calendar may be of any size/dimension.
