Online show dates: August 22 to October 3, 2023

Zoom Roundtable August 22 at 4pm Pacific Time

Continuing our annual show devoted to women artists, O’Hanlon Center for the Arts is committed to bringing more gender equity to the world of art. This 15th year we extend our reach around the globe to artists who identify as female and encourage them to submit to this popular ONLINE show.

Works do NOT need to be for Sale.

Works must be created by an artist who identifies as female but the work DOES NOT need to reference or allude to images of women or women’s issues. It is certainly OK if they do!

Our curation and presentation of the selected work is exceptional. We promote the artists through social media, print media and through our email outreach. We create a quality printable catalog of the show and the the online shows are archived but accessible after close of show. Visit our Current Exhibits to see examples of other online shows.

O’Hanlon Center for the Arts emphasizes the creative process and the continued pursuit of meaning and authenticity through observation, exploration, and experimentation.

Each artist may submit up to 3 individual pieces of artwork for consideration into this juried show. All media welcome except video. YES photography, fiber, sculpture, digital etc. Diptychs and Triptychs are considered 1 piece of work. Diptychs and Triptychs must be submitted as one image.
