Craftivism: The Art of Action
EXHIBITION DATES: JULY 3 – 25, 2020
ENTRY DEADLINE: APRIL 16, 2020
NOTIFICATIONS: WEEK OF MAY 20, 2020
Exhibition Description: Craftivism is an art-form that fuses art, craft, and action. This broad definition creates endless opportunities for artists to innovative solutions to today’s biggest cultural, structural, and societal issues. At its best, craftivists use their work to build community, give voice, challenge systems of oppression, and demonstrate tangible outcomes. Craftivism is far more than making for the sake of making. It is making for the sake of systemic change.
Open to women-identified and non-binary artists living or working in the United States, Woman Made Gallery is inviting artwork in any media that focuses on the message to engage the broader community with the intend to effect change.
All entries should include a brief theme-related statement (max. 250 words.) They like to receive entries of recent works, but there is no restriction in the creation date. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG. The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Shannon Downey better known as Badass Cross Stitch, is a community organizer disguised as a fiber artist and craftivist. She blends her politics, activism, and art into projects that are designed to inspire others to take action, think, discuss, engage with democracy and their community, and find some digital/analog balance. http://www.badasscrossstitch.com/
