San Diego Womens Caucus for Art is launching an on-line gallery and exhibition space.
In a refreshing departure from traditional gallery operations, artists will not have to play the who-knows-who, elitist game to be featured in this gallery. They will be selected for their talent. Our online art gallery will be dedicated to helping contemporary artists display their original art while making it easier for the public to find them. The public can use the online gallery to search or browse for original art, then contact the artists or their galleries. We simply highlight the artists and their art. We provide a way to find art, artists, and galleries and help artists promote their contemporary art.
All WCA members are invited to participate in juried and non-juried exhibitions. The SDWCA juried show website is directly linked to our WCA chapter website.
Here is the theme of our first on-line juried show
GOING GREEN - SUMMER 2010
The exhibition objective is to present a collection of work that uses organic, natural, sustainable. recycled materials, non-toxic materials or digital methods. It is hoped that the works will educate the audience about environmental crises; art that informs and interprets natural processes; art that reinvents or reclaims natural found articles; and art that celebrates our emotional and physical connection to the earth. Ultimately, the juror seeks visually compelling creations that educate, enlighten, and inspire stewardship of the earth.
Mollie Kellogg, local artist will be our juror. Mollie studied art in Colorado starting her career in graphic design and illustration. In 1992, she co-founded Planet Earth Multi-Cultural Theatre and Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2002, Mollie moved from Seattle, Washington to San Diego, California where she is working full-time as an artist. Mollie will be looking for art that incorporates natural processes; art that reinvents or reclaims natural found articles; and art that celebrates our emotional and physical connection to the earth. Ultimately, she seeks visually compelling creations that educate, enlighten, and inspire stewardship of the earth.

Koehnline Museum of Art: Women Artists - No Place Like Home: Examining Changing Landscapes in Our Lives
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.”
For questions, please call Nathan Harpaz, manager of the Koehnline Museum of Art, 847-635-2633
