Body image, male sexual misconduct, discrimination, gender identity, likeability are just a few of many issues women are faced with on a daily basis, according to a news release from the gallery.

As a woman, how do you respond artistically to current events? If you are a person who does not identify as a woman — what attributes do you think are essential for defining female-ness in today’s world? Is it a fluid line? Grab your glue guns, knitting needles, chisels, brushes, cameras, or other medium or choice. With a broad brush and open mind answer to the call: Women. Respond! Some restrictions may apply. Hazardous materials and open flames not accepted. All artists are welcome to submit, regardless of gender identity.
