Call for Art
DEADLINE APRIL 20
June 2-27 2015
All current members of the Michigan Chapter of Women’s Caucus for Art are invited to submit work for the upcoming annual WCAMI Show “Making Connections”. The theme of the show centers on the social and artistic connections that provide artists with contacts, inspiration and support in their art practice. Each current member of WCA is invited to invite another artist who is of importance in the pursuit of her artistic aims. This can be a peer, a mentor or an emerging artist supported by the WCAMI member. The exhibit will be held in the Gallery at Marygrove College, Liberal Arts Building, 9425 West McNichols, Detroit MI 48221.
The exhibit will run June 2-27, with a reception on June 6, 6-8. Each member artist is requested to donate $15 towards exhibit /opening expenses, due upon delivery of artworks to Marygrove.
Each WCAMI member artist is guaranteed to have at least one piece selected for this exhibit. The exhibit will be curated by members of the WCAMI Board. Our goal is to provide our members and guests with an opportunity to show their best work.
