EXHIBITION OPPORTUNITIES IN THE BAY AREA AND BEYOND
Who Are You?
What In this exhibit we ask you to explore identity. Whether you’ve embraced the identity assigned to you at birth or you have fashioned one cut from new cloth, what does identity mean to you? We ask you to consider the following questions:
• How is your identity informed by your ethnicity, who you love, your gender, your political or religious beliefs, the culture that resonates within you? How has your identity changed over the years? In what ways has your identity shaped or changed your life? Does the world see and accept you for who you are?
• Allow your art to give voice to that which you personally define as identity. It can be very personal, or it can highlight a person or a cause that is about the concept.
• We invite two- and three-dimensional art. Think portraits, landscapes, abstract, photos, collages, paintings, sculptures, fiber arts, clay, paper, sound installation, video.

What Are You Voting For?
What With What are You Voting For, we ask — in this upcoming election year, what are the issues that will drive you to the polls? As the United States becomes more isolated from other countries due to its own policies and the current partisan political landscape, the lives of its citizens become more difficult and even dangerous through the erosion of social, health and environmental policies and even common decency. There is so much at stake in the November 2020 elections and there are so many issues that polarize and define us: racism, Black Lives Matter, women’s rights, abortion, the ERA, intersectionality, power, privilege, the Covid19 pandemic, masks, the climate crisis, unemployment, education, health care, jobs, the economy, voting, surveillance, privacy, constitutional rights . . . With this exhibition, we ask you to share your voice and your vision, and to respond to the issues above 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.

What “Fragments” brings to mind broken pieces, something incomplete, a small part of something larger or remains when something has been lost or destroyed. We are seeking works ranging from abstract to representational, fantasy to realism, and portraiture to architecture and landscape. Help us shatter traditional boundaries by your imaginative interpretation of “fragments.”
