Call for Submissions

Femina Potens Art Gallery is currently taking submissions for our 2009 Visual Arts Exhibition season. We are looking for art works in all mediums: painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, performance artists, video artists, installation and new media. Please fill out an online artists' application (at www.feminapotens.org) and submit a proposal for art works. Include an introductory letter of interest, artist resume, bio, artist's statement, and 10 images on CD and printed for review by our curatorial staff. All submitted art works will be considered for group shows. In our 2009 season we plan to explore the following thematic shows; if your work doesn't fit into one of these shows please still submit works, as these are only suggestions.

Ritual - Art work on the subject of Tattoos, Body Modification, Scarification, Piercing

Green Living - Art work around inner peace, animal rights, veganism, environmentalism, yoga, meditation

Welcome to the Big Top - Ariel performance, contortion, and circus themed art works

Lube me up - An exploration of women, bikes and leather culture

Pop Pop Fizz Fizz - Classic pop art and pop surrealism

Femina Potens is also looking for works that relate to the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health of the queer community as well as site specific installation artists that can create works for a commission around such subject matter.

Submission deadline is September 1st, 2008. Please send proposals (make sure that all materials are included in proposal) to: Femina Potens Visual Art Submissions, Tina Butcher, 1305 Franklin #600, Oakland CA 94612.

Thank you,
Tina Butcher
