Koehnline Museum of Art: Women Artists - No Place Like Home: Examining Changing Landscapes in Our Lives

Call For Entries - Women Artists

No Place Like Home: Examining Changing Landscapes in Our Lives
A Juried Exhibition of Art by Women
Deadline for entries: September 1, 2010
Sponsored by the Koehnline Museum of Art and theWomen’s and Gender Studies Program at Oakton Community College.

The concept of home resonates with personal truths, as well as social, political, and economic realities. Our individual identities are formed by where we come from, and where and how we live. Home can be a building, a person, a nation, or a memory. Homes can be lost, found, or abandoned. They can be cleaned, improved, or destroyed. Home can be a place of refuge—or a place of oppression. For this year’s juried exhibition, Oakton Community College invites women artists to submit a single work in any media that thoughtfully examines the theme, “No Place Like Home: Examining Changing Landscapes in Our Lives,” and how the concept of home shapes our individual and shared experiences.
Where: Koehnline Museum of Art, Oakton Community College, 1600 East Golf Road, Des Plaines, IL, 847-635-2633
When: The exhibit runs Thursday, October 21, through Saturday, November 6, 2010. A public reception will be held Thursday, October 21, 2010, from 5 to 8 p.m. Artists are encouraged to attend this special event and discuss their work with students, faculty, staff, and community members.
Who: Artists who self-identify as women are invited to submit one work for consideration. Submissions must be from professional artists 18 years of age or older.
Jury/Entry Fee: No entry fee.
Catalog: A catalog of the exhibition will be produced.
Submission of Work: Each artist may submit one original work for consideration. Work should relate to the theme of “home.”
