ka-POW! Heroic Women Exhibition
This show celebrates the heroic archetype in fem form and the power, magic, and mythology of women. All styles, media, and practice disciplines will be considered. Artists may submit up to three works. Each current member accepted for participation will be allowed, at minimum, one work in the show. Note: KA-POW! is the 2018 members show organized by the Northern California Women's Caucus for Art. It is our intention to represent all members who submit entries, therefore, work selected by the curator that does not fit into the parameters of the Pacific Pinball Museum will be exhibited through our online gallery.

THURSDAY DECEMBER 28 YEAR-END PARTY!!!
We invite all NCWCA members and potential members to join us for our light-hearted year-end party,
WHEN Thursday, December 28 6-9:30 PM
WHERE Judy Johnson-Williams' studio, 347 Lewis St, Oakland
Bring a delicious potluck item to eat or drink
Wear an ugly Christmas sweater if there is one in your closet
Studio White Elephant Exchange: find something that's been sitting in your studio unused - an art tool or once-potential-filled object, wrap it in bright shiny paper and be prepared for a fun-filled exchange. The item can be just what someone else was looking for, sublime, fanciful, outrageous, shocking or memorable for many years to come....
Burn bad juju: write down all the ugly stuff you dealt with in 2017 on a piece of paper, twist it up and burn it all away in Judy's hibachi.
Surprise art project, shrouded in secrecy by Professional Development Chair Elizabeth Addison, to be revealed at the party
