Please include one detail per work only if necessary, as with book art or three-dimensional works or if areas in two-dimensional work need to be clarified. Accepted artwork must not exceed 72″ horizontally or have been previously shown at WMG.

The entry fee for juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three works including details. Artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; just send us an email message about that: [email protected]. A statement related to the theme is required.

CALL FOR ARTWORK: Document (pdf)
Exhibition Dates: Jan. 16 – Feb. 26, 2015
A “Documentation” themed group show.
A document provides evidence, or serves as an official record through text or image that something happened or simply exists. We are looking for entries of artwork from artists of any gender identification that takes the form of documentation. We encourage broad visual and conceptual interpretations of what it means to “document” something today—from works that record unseen activities through photography, video, new media or ephemera to installations that make visible the invisible elements of an environment. All themes, styles, and media will be considered.
Entries may be mailed with jpgs on a CD or submit your entry with digital files (jpgs) online. Entry Fee: $30 for images of up to 3 works.
Online Entries Submit jpgs of up to three of your works on our website.
Mailed Entries Mail a cd with jpg images of up to three of your works, completed entry form, and a $30 entry fee to Woman Made Gallery, 685 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60642.
