HALLOWELL — The Harlow is seeking art for the upcoming exhibition, “Women. Respond!,” an open call juried show which will be on view Aug. 2 to Sept. 7. The deadline for entries is 11:59 p.m. Saturday, June 15. Entries will be juried by a curatorial committee comprised of Deb Fahy and Amy Peters Wood and fine art and museum consultant Daphne Anderson Deeds.

Body image, male sexual misconduct, discrimination, gender identity, likeability are just a few of many issues women are faced with on a daily basis. As a woman, how do you respond artistically to current events? If you are a person who does not identify as a woman — what attributes do you think are essential for defining female-ness in today’s world? Is it a fluid line? Grab your glue guns, knitting needles, chisels, brushes, cameras or other medium or choice. With a broad brush and open mind, answer to the call: Women. Respond!

Some restrictions may apply. Hazardous materials and open flames will not be accepted. All artists are welcome to submit, regardless of gender identity.
