Women Artists: TO SUBMIT YOUR ARTWORK: send images to contact@urbanartretreat.com Actual art must be rec’d at gallery by January 26, 20

In addition to other subjects of interest to women,
artists ARE ENCOURAGED to create and submit art that tells a story about violence against women & girls – whether in the past or current. We gather art for display that shows how violence against women & girls is happening now, and how it’s use in the past, shows how women have been controlled through fear.
Rape keeps women from going outside and having a full life. Domestic violence keeps women in abusive relationships and away from their own personal power. Honor killings keep women from leading full lives & having options. These are just a few ways that women are controlled by violence.
Women need to continue to speak up and let their voices be heard. Men who support women need to get on board. Women need platforms for their opinions and their voices to be heard. This art show will allow viewers to discuss what they see, and what the status of women’s & girls lives are like.
During the art show, we will offer art workshops to make art about issues women are particularly concerned about.
