Call for entries for a group art exhibit open to all visual artists
Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery
May 1st to May 25, 2014
Media: drawing, painting, mixed media, fibre art, sculpture and/or photography.
Theme: The visual art exhibit, ‘Envisioning Women” will be presented by the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery in collaboration with Festival Ha’Rikud, an Israeli dance festival. The theme for Dance Festival in 2014 is “Celebrating Nashim”, which in Hebrew means ‘Celebrating Women’. Dances will be inspired by biblical women like Rachel, Miriam, Esther or Ruth or modern Jewish Women, like Golda Meir, Hannah Szenes, or Naomi Shemer or will showcase traditional rituals performed by women, like shabbat candle lighting, challah making, or the henna ceremony performed before Hindu and North African Weddings. Visual artists are asked to explore similar themes through visual art; to pay tribute to well known female characters from the bible, women in history or modern heroines and/or to highlight traditions in various cultures taken on by women or for women.
All of the artwork, chosen by a jury, will be on display in the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery.
Commission on Sales: The art will be for sale. The Gallery receives a 25% commission.
Application deadline: Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at 4 pm.
