Hi Artists! Here is another great call for art that is in conjunction with UniteWomen.org. Hope you are having a great summer and I look forward to another impactful and meaningful exhibition by women artists! Best, Karen
Voices: An Artist’s Perspective
Voice, by definition, includes a larger sense of expression than just the utterance of sound; it also signifies meaning and intention in artistic pursuits. “Voices: An Artists Perspective” seeks art in all media with works portraying a unique, individual voice and style to tell stories, whether the voice is as soft as a whisper or a loud, primal scream that will engage the viewer.
Feminism advocates for freedom from restrictive sex roles and the inclusion of all voices in its push for gender equality and the fight for social, cultural, economic and political rights. This call for art seeks to include broad concepts of imagery using a woman’s voice as the visual narrative. Expressing your voice through art to tell your story is a means to reveal mind and spirit whether with symbolic bold energy or subtle poetic expression. Share your voice, your story, your art.
JURORS: Joan McLoughlin, McLoughlin Gallery, San Francisco and Amanda Uribe, gallery nine5, NYC.
The work will first be juried by Karen Gutfreund and UniteWomen.org from all entries to 100 pieces that will be included in the catalog and online gallery. From these works, Joan McLouglin and Amanda Uribe will also jury the selections for the gallery and choose their top three works each which will also be premiered on the UniteWomen.org website.

UniteWomen.org Mission Statement:
As a national non-partisan grassroots organization, our mission is to end inequality for women that stems from prejudice and discrimination and to defend and advance the human and civil rights of women and girls. UniteWomen.org Manifesto: http://www.unitewomen.org/manifesto/
ABOUT THE NAWA GALLERY:
In January of 1889, five innovative women, Grace Fitz-Randolph, Edith Mitchell Prellwitz, Adele Frances Bedell, Anita C. Ashley, and Elizabeth S. Cheever, barred from full participation in the male-dominated National Academy of Design and The Society of American Artists, founded the Women’s Art Club. The organization flourished and in 1913 was renamed the National Association of Women Painters and Sculptors, reflecting its national influence and the increasing number of women sculptors. Through the 1920’s the organization was sponsoring exhibitions nationally and abroad. In the 1930s membership grew to over 1,000 and the organization opened its Argent Galleries on 57th Street in New York City. In 1941, the organization changed its name again to the National Association of Women Artists.
Early exhibitions included works by the notable artists Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, Suzanne Valadon and Cecelia Beaux. Later, membership rosters included Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Anna Hyatt Huntington, Louise Nevelson, Cleo Hartwig, Malvina Hoffman, Minna Citron, Alice Neel, Theresa Bernstein, Nell Blaine, and Dorothy Dehner.
The purpose of the National Association of Women Artists (N.A.W.A.) is to foster public awareness of, and interest in, visual art created by women in the United States. The Association promotes culture and education in the visual arts through exhibitions of its members’ works, educational programs, scholarships, awards, its historical archive, and other appropriate means.
While encouraging contemporary and emerging artists, the Association honors and continues the long and important contribution of women to the history of American culture and art.
Through N.A.W.A.’s exhibitions, programs, events, education programs and archive, the Association fosters awareness of the monumental contribution of women to the history of American culture and art. The organization is inclusive and serves professional women visual artists of all backgrounds and traditions that are at least 18 years of age and U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents. N.A.W.A. is a 501©3 not-for profit, tax exempt organization.

Women’s Caucus for Art
by Keith McFarlane, Editor, Artworld Community Magazine!
Artworld is pleased to announce the birth of our Community Magazine. The magazine is open to artists, art-marketeers, art-lovers, gallerists, critics, academics, and public institutions. Articles are invited on any topic related to contemporary art. Artworld is very much a broad church, and, besides fine art, we welcome sculpture, illustration, photography, artisanal crafts, wood carving, metal-working, textiles, mixed and digital media–anything in short that can be represented by an image and that exhibits exceptional quality and skill.
We aim to showcase the range and quality of contemporary art, whatever the medium, style, or school. It’s an extraordinary success story that we aim to celebrate! Contrast this with the so often negative image of the auction house and “the shock of the new”. The magazine represents, we believe, a chance for emerging and talented artists to gain a sympathetic audience and, in time perhaps, a wider recognition.
1. The articles should interest a wide audience, be well founded, critically aware and well written, written that is in English and polished to a literary standard.
2. The articles should be supportive in tone, supportive, that is, of the arts and artists–particularly those deserving of wider recognition.
3. Critical articles are acceptable, indeed they are welcome as a vehicle for encouraging correspondence and debate. Critical work should expect to justify itself with evidence, not with rhetoric, and should address individuals,
movements or institutions well able to mount a defence. Such essays should never be vitriolic, never argue ad hominem. Neither should they shout, nor whisper, to undermine or to attack.
4. The subject of articles is open, and the literary forms various, including but not limited to letters, announcements, essays, philosophical or genre pieces, and, not least, the literary appreciation. By appreciation, is intended a short
essay illustrating, interpreting and yes praising the best work from emerging and undervalued artists.
5. Articles should be succinct, perhaps 500 to 1,000 words. Illustrations should be limited to one, two or three. Much can be included via hyperlinks, the artist’s web-site, social media, perhaps a video. Longer articles will be
accepted (or not) weighing their length against their merit.
6. Articles should be thoughtful and thought-provoking. The magazine is not a conveyor belt of images to be liked, or not: ephemera, mere fodder, for the social media. Artworld aims to build a serious community, seriously
committed to contemporary artists and to their art. We are, moreover, strongly supportive of good writing, and the maintenance of a critical discipline almost as important to art and to literature as the artists themselves.
The magazine will launch with two editors, one a poet, the other an artist. These are Keith McFarlane, the originator of Artworld and maker of the Artworld app, and Marie
Kazalia, well-known as an artist and proprietor of the respected web resource, Artists Marketing Resources. Contact Marie Kazalia via email: MarieKazalia@gmail.com and send Keith McFarlane a message via his ArtWorld app Facebook page.
