ArtRage Gallery: Call for Art on Women's Issues
For its fall exhibit, "Seen & Heard: At the 100th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage," ArtRage Gallery is seeking submissions by women-identified artists of CNY whose work addresses issues facing women in 2017. Examples of themes: reproductive choice, healthcare, sexual violence, harassment, equal pay, beauty standards, gender roles, work that speaks to intersectionality of sexism and racism, etc.
We are seeking 2-D, 3-D and media-based work. (Note: the gallery has limited space for 3-D work.) Submissions can be of finished work or for proposals for new work. Proposals for new work must include detailed plans and 4 examples of past work.
This exhibition is in collaboration with the Everson Museum of Art's summer exhibition, "Seen & Heard," which will feature contemporary artists addressing issues of visibility and representation. The exhibition at ArtRage will open shortly after the Everson's exhibition closes to continue this community conversation into the fall of 2017.
Submission Deadline: May 1, 2017

Light Work is pleased to announce the 2017 Light Work Grants in Photography competition. Light Work began offering grants to CNY artists in 1975 to encourage the production of new photographic work in the region. Three $3,000 grants will be awarded to photographers who reside within an approximate 50-mile radius of Syracuse. The recipients of these grants are invited to display their work in a special exhibition at Light Work, and their work will also be reproduced in Light Work's award-winning publication, Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual.
In its 40-year history, Light Work Grants have supported more than 110 artists, some multiple times. With the help of the regional grant, many artists have been able to continue long-term projects, purchase equipment, frame photographs for exhibitions, promote their work, collaborate with others, or otherwise continue their artist goals.
Three judges from outside the grant region will review the applications. Their decisions are based solely on the strength of the candidate's portfolio and completed application. Individuals who received this award in 2012 or earlier are eligible to re-apply. Full-time students are not eligible.
Application and guidelines are available at www.lightwork.org/grants/apply. The deadline for the 2017 Light Work Grants is April 1, 2017.Call for "At Work" Photos
