SUBMISSIONS DUE for Nature/Nurture Art Exhibit
February 5 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
Wistariahurst Museum is seeking artist submissions for the Second Annual Women’s History Month juried art showcase for the month of March. This year, the theme is Nature/Nurture.
The phrase nature vs. nurture proposes that humanness is formed through our genetics and/or our environments. Both genetics and environment impact who we are and who we can become in the world. Both can impact our mental health, our physical health, and even personality traits. When considering the theme of Nature/Nurture, artists can submit works that showcase nature’s impact on you, it could focus on a person who nurtured you, it could explore the duality of nature/nurture in humanity, explore how the science of genetics impacts individuals or humanity, or any number of other possibilities. We encourage any medium for submission. Submissions are open to anyone who identifies as a woman and non-binary artists of any age. Submissions should include 3-4 quality images with information (title, date, medium, and size), an artist statement (approximately 300 words about your art and its relationship to the theme), and an artist bio (approximately 150 words about you as an artist) in one PDF.
We are an artist-friendly space that encourages creativity and supports the growth of this region’s artists. Any and all questions are welcome and encouraged. Five artists will be selected and awarded a $100 stipend. Submissions are due February 5.
