This exhibition seeks art of all mediums focusing on gender expectations and socialization. This call is open to BIPOC Queer, Non-Binary and Trans Femmes.

This is not a call for still lifes or traditional landscapes. This is a call for art bringing robust energy and an unforgiving point of view.

All mediums accepted, original art work only. (painting, photography, sculpture, etc)

All work must be ready to hang or be installed. We cannot accept work otherwise.


The submission deadline is July 13. Applicants will be notified of acceptance July 20 and all work must be hand delivered to the gallery between July 28-31.
