Event Description

National Deadline: May 10, 2015 – The By and About Women: celebrating the female spirit juried competition is now open for submissions. All visual artists (male or female) are invited to submit their work.

Much has been written and sung about the power, love, passion, strength, creativity, and tenacity of women. The R Dixon Gallery invites you to submit original artwork that expresses your interpretation of the female spirit…visually translating relationships and perceptions of mothers, sisters, daughters, lovers, friends, or yourself.

The R Dixon Gallery is a new, woman-owned art gallery in Seneca Falls, NY-the location of the first women’s rights convention. The “By and About Women: celebrating the female spirit” exhibit will accept and display original art that best reflects a unique, visual consideration of the theme. There will be two cash awards: $250 for “Best in Show” and $250 for “People’s Choice” recognition.

Terry Ariano, former curator, Museum of the City of New York.

Terry Ariano has worked as a theatrical set designer and exhibit installer in New York City, and in recent years has worked as an archivist, collections coordinator, and director for history and arts organizations throughout New York’s Hudson Valley. Ariano has curated shows at the Somers Historical Society and at independent galleries, most recently: the Front Street Gallery in Patterson, NY. She is an inspired photographer, whose work has been exhibited in Manhattan, the Catskills, the Hudson Valley, and select galleries in Connecticut.
