N.A.W.A. Shelter 2018
By National Association of Women Artists, Inc.

U.S. National Deadline: January 7, 2018 – The National Association of Women Artists, Inc. (NAWA) announces a call for artists for its upcoming exhibition exhibition ‘Shelter’, to be held at the Harlem School of the Arts, New York, March 1 – 31, 2018.

Open to All Women Artists 18 Years of Age and Older. No gicleés of paintings or reproductions except for photography. No ceiling hung art. No nudes, open flames, firearms, or pyrotechnic devices allowed.

One of our most basic needs, with food and love, ‘Shelter’, is a major concern for all living beings. ‘Shelter’ is a major concern, especially when it comes to refugees, immigrants, those struggling to pay the rent, homelessness, climate change, drug addiction and victims of domestic violence. Artwork centered on ‘Shelter’, open to the artists’ interpretation, can bring light to these ongoing problems.

Certificates of Excellence Awarded.

Entry fee $40 for NAWA members, $50 for nonmembers. Each entrant is entitled to submit three (3) artworks.
