Artists are encouraged to submit original paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and poetry/performance art for the two openings; First Friday, March 1, 2013 and the First Friday, April 5, 2013.  Deadline for the March show is Monday, February 18th and the deadline for consideration for the April show is March 25, 2013.


J. Ellen Austin, artist and owner of the JEGA Gallery believes, “’Women With Attitude,’ and the men who believe in us, exhibit courage in their daily lives and strive to give back to others, their communities and society at large.”   J. Ellen goes on to say, “I’m talking about women and men who do something with their lives and keep on doing, keep on learning, growing and contributing.”


“Attitude” symbolizes an outlook and respect for other peoples’ philosophies, lifestyles and cultural diversities while retaining a youthful willingness to learn and grow from new knowledge and experiences.”


JEGA looks forward to each year’s entries because “one of the wonders of ‘Women With Attitude’ is creativity, in all senses, all forms.”  Each year an incredible array of entries have come in from talented Women AND Men in our Rogue Valley and beyond! These works comprising photographs, sculptures, drawings, paintings and performance art provoke a whole spectrum of thoughts and bring forth a whole range of emotions.
