TOUCH Call for Art from Woman Made Gallery

TOUCH, A Virtual Exhibition Exhibition Opens: June 5, 2020 Entry Due Date: May 9, 2020 Notification: May 16, 2020Curator/Juror: Gina Lee Robbins


(One artwork from each submission is guaranteed to be included.)

Exhibition Description: Inspired by the current pandemic, this exhibition looks at something that many of us have had to completely do without: TOUCH. Most of the world is under order to shelter in place, practice social distancing, stay 6 feet away from each other. This is particularly punishing given that the tactile is such an integral part of the way we develop human relationships. In fact, our use of the word “touch” in English has long referred to how we stay connected–even from a distance. What does it mean to touch another? How does restricting our ability to touch a friend, a lover or even a stranger affect our well-being? When

NAMI SO Film Fest Poster artwork competition REMINDER


NAMI SO Film Fest Poster artwork competition:

As a fun way to involve the artists in our community, the NAMI SO Film Fest Committee wants to invite you to submit two-dimensional art pieces for consideration for the 2020 film fest poster! The winner will get to see their artwork all over Jackson and Josephine counties and will receive special mention in the programs and two tickets to Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s 2020 Season!

This is a great way to show how art is relevant to mental health. The composition should be easy-to-identify, somehow connecting with the theme of mental health, and it should be a positive message of hope, help and recovery. A big ask? Maybe. But so very important!

Bring original artwork submissions for the poster (signed but unframed, as it will need to be scanned if it wins) to the NAMI Library at 140 S. Holly, Medford, Rm

Artwork should reflect your narrative experience – your story of being female. We’re searching for a variety of voices to share triumphs and setbacks that highlight gains made or what is missing in our society in terms of equality between the sexes. What is your story and how is it woven into a struggle for equality over 100 years old that has only definitively delivered the right
