Call for Artists | Adorn: Contemporary Wearable Art

260874730cc96f5e088e9eb96c2cce8f“Do jewelers belong to the world of art or craft?” asked New York Times writer Victoria Gomelsky in an article on contemporary wearables she penned in 2014.

Woman Made Gallery, a not-for-profit organization helps “female-identified artists” in an era where feminism is taking a spotlight. Their goal is to nurture and sponsor artists through “exhibition opportunities, professional development, and public programs”.

Their upcoming show: Adorn: Contemporary Wearable Art showcases works that are, well, wearable. Works said  to show a great deal of innovation and creativity.

If you are an aspiring artist that would jump at an opportunity to showcase your work, well here’s your chance! The submission deadline is July 15, and the show will run from September 11 – October 22 2015. Click here for more information and to submit your art!
