Beyond the Curves
 

Beyond the curves is a celebration of women.

Gallery 40 will host a month-long curated visual art show as well as a performance of monologues and short scenes connected to the show.

Gallery 40 is seeking artwork that celebrates women's fortitude, persistence, and strength in the face of adversity.

Women ahead of their time... women who worked and persisted without the proper recognition... women who have been judged or misunderstood... women whose voices may yet be unacknowledged... women who carried the light in the shadow of the patriarchy...

The artwork can represent the concept or depict specific famous or unknown women, historical or contemporary, factual or fictional, or a woman from your own community or family.

This call is limited to 2-dimensional artwork.
