ACTING OUT: Visual Responses to a Changing World

A juried exhibition hosted by the Women’s Caucus for Art Carolinas

September 12 – November 4, 2022

DEADLINE TO SUMBIT: JULY 31, 2022

The past few years have forced us to change—pivot—adapt—shift—evolve—accept—fight. Circumstances out of our control have challenged our normal experience and altered the world. We can’t help but react and act out in response. The Women’s Caucus for Art Carolinas invites you to submit work that captures your personal responses to an ever-changing world.

The exhibition will be held in-person at the Wilma Daniels Gallery in Wilmington, NC. Two receptions will be held, coinciding with Downtown Wilmington’s Fourth Friday Gallery Nights.

I Do Believe – A Postcard Exhibition

Created and curated by Priscilla Otani in Collaboration with Women’s Caucus for Art.

DEADLINE TO SUMBIT: JULY 31, 2022

The woman’s right to abortion in the United States became Federal law on January 22, 1973 through the Supreme Court Case, Roe v. Wade. Individual states could no longer have their own laws that would contradict the provisions of this Supreme Court decision. But the passage of Roe v. Wade did not put the issue of abortion rights to rest. The recently leaked draft of the Supreme Court opinion by Justice Samuel Alito in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is expected to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. This will likely become law, and other anti-abortion laws may soon take effect in many States. There are widespread disagreements among United States citizens, politicians and media about abortion. Priscilla Otani, an NCWCA (Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art) member in San Francisco, is organizing this postcard exhibit to visually discuss this subject. Opinions on all sides of the abortion debate are welcomed.
