Artist & Curatorial Applications


Femina Potens Art Gallery is currently taking submissions for our 2011 Visual Arts Exhibition season.  Femina Potens is a non-profit community art gallery and performance space dedicated to the advancement of women and transgendered artists. We are looking for art works in all mediums painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture (although small sculptures and wall mounted sculpture is best due to space restriction), performance artists, video artists, installation and new media.

Femina Potens is also looking for works that relate to the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health of the queer community as well as site-specific installation artists that can create works around such subject matter for our window displays.
