The Women's Caucus for Art announces a national call for Stories We Tell, portraying the rich tradition of visual storytelling through women's voices. What stories do we tell ourselves, make up about ourselves, tell others, or share with our families, friends and the larger world? What needs to be heard? Whether activist or abstract, we are seeking artwork that addresses your aesthetic, political, or philosophical perspectives. Storytelling is central to human existence, common to every known culture and women are usually the record-keepers and the storytellers of the family. We use spoken and visual narratives to make sense of our world and to share that understanding with others. Your story may be activist/political, a contemporary interpretation of an ancient myth, or based on personal or family stories.
This call is open to all self-identified women residing in the United States. We are seeking artwork in all media and genre: figurative/narrative, text based art, and abstract/conceptual; art that weaves together a story through mood and tone, work to provoke and inspire. Artists are encouraged to interpret this theme broadly; submit works that have resonance and meaning to you.
