CALL FOR ART Is There a Mother in the House? Exhibition Dates: April 13 – May 5, 2018 Final Entry Due Date: February 9, 2018

Juror: Janet Bloch

CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT WORK https://womanmadegallery.submittable.com/submit

Invitation to all artists worldwide to submit artwork for this exhibition.Is there a Mother in the House? The current state of our world might compel us to say no. The swell of women’s voices says otherwise, and how. We all come from mothers. We inhabit Mother Earth. From Mother Nature to Mother Superior, from the Mother of Invention to Motherf*@%!#, there are many forms of Mother. This exhibit aims to consider them all. Fierce to funny. Domestic to mythic.

What is the meaning of Mother, and what house does she inhabit? What sway does a mother’s voice, presence, love—or lack of these things—have? Must one bear a child, or be a woman, to be a

ARTifACTs We Almost Didn’t Make It January 2018 Exhibition at CoCA in Seattle

CoCA January 2018 exhibit ARTifACTs We Almost Didn't Make It featured image of a doormat with text: When Will this Nightmare Be Over?

ARTifACTs: We Almost Didn’t Make It addresses fears, despair and grief surrounding climate change, and other ecocide assaults on the psyche of humanity

From January 20 to February 24, Seattle’s Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA) will feature the activist art collective ARTifACTs with the interactive and generative gallery installation, We Almost Didn’t Make It. The exhibit focuses on the outcome of our choices in a time where the effects of our participation in the destruction of our planet seems so short-sighted. In a game-like installation, visitors will be presented with work tables covered with “ingredients” and “recipes” that make an artifact which represents aspects of our current world that may not exist in the next 150 years. Each participant will place a commitment to an action into that artifact that will help future generations not only exist, but thrive.
