Zoom Roundtable with Jurors Tuesday, July 30 at 4 pm Pacific Time

New this year: We have a new co-juror this year and a lower submission fee.

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 16th year we extend our reach around the globe to artists who identify as female and encourage them to submit to this popular ONLINE show.

The art must be created by a person 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 are exceptional. We promote the artists through social media, print media and email outreach. We create a quality printable catalog of the show and the online shows are archived but accessible after the close of the show. Visit our website to see examples of other online shows.
