CALLS FOR ART

Pacific Region Call for Art | DEADLINE Feb 28, 2021

With this new year, 2021, we are entering a great time in our lives. We have for the very first time ever a woman of color in the White House as the Vice President of the United States of America. A time to celebrate, a time to imagine and hope for the best of everything for women in this new year. We are hoping for peace, sharing and a vaccine to end to COVID-19 in our nation, and for the world.

  • What are your visions of this new year? What are your hopes and dreams for the future? Do you see ideas, progress, and cures to save our lives?
  • Do you see the American nation as one nation with equality for all people?
  • Do you want to return to how we were, or do you see a new world in the year 2021?

We are encouraging you to make a postcard to share with your fellow artists. You will receive artwork from another artist in return. 

Deadline: February 28, 2021 Visit SCWCA here for more information.

If you are a 2021 Member of the Northern, Southern California, or Peninsula Chapter, you are eligible to enter.

WCA’s Featured Artists | DEADLINE March 1, 2021

The 2021-2022 WCA Featured Artists Program is taking on a fresh new direction this year!

The WCA “Featured Artists” will be selected by a young curator who will choose the 12 artists from the WCA Member Gallery. The “Featured Artist” section on WCA’s Homepage includes the artist’s name, three rotating images, and a link to the artist’s website. Each selected artist will also be featured in our newsletter, PULSE.

This year’s curator is Jess Xiao Long, an active member of the WCA Art Writer’s Committee. Jess Xiao Long is a first-year graduate student in the Art History & Museum Studies program at Case Western Reserve University, and a Cleveland Museum of Art fellow. She graduated from the Ohio University Honors Tutorial College in 2020, earning a BA in Art History, minors in History, Studio Art, and Business Administration, and a Museum Studies Certificate. Jess Xiao Long is a contemporary art historian with experience working for art museums and nonprofits, and her research interests include performativity, feminism, body politics, popular culture, colonialism, and consumerism. Her undergraduate thesis focused on the history of women in the tattoo industry and the changing cultural symbolism of the tattoo, specifically on female bodies. Jess Xiao Long is passionate about equity in the arts and dedicated to the mission of decolonizing cultural institutions.”
