With What are You Voting For, we ask — in this upcoming election year, what are the issues that will drive you to the polls?

With this exhibition, we ask you to share your voice and your vision, and to respond to the issues in relation to policies, decisions, laws, protests, your experience, and attempts at civil dialogue and protest. Consider our democracy and the debate over freedom of speech, freedom of choice and freedom to choose to live as you wish. Whether you lean to the right or lean to the left, show us what you think through art that reflects and addresses these complex socio-cultural issues. Art submissions can range from literal to poetic, abstract to representational, and include social and political commentary.

Open to women-identified and non-binary artists from the local, national, and international community, Woman Made Gallery is seeking art that illustrates the issue(s) that will determine how they cast their votes this fall. This will be an on-line only exhibition, viewable on Woman Made Gallery’s website and social media channels.

All Entries should include a brief (max. 200 words.) statement related to this theme and your work. We like to receive entries of recent works, but there is no restriction in the creation date. Accepted artworks must not have been previously shown at WMG.

The Application Fee for this online exhibition is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image each. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver:
