art-center-logo-80RICHLAND, Wash. – Female artists and designers in the Columbia Basin and surrounding region are invited to submit art for a public exhibit in November at the Washington State University Tri-Cities’ Art Center.

“Historically ‘women in art’ have been unfairly marginalized,” says Peter Christenson, assistant professor of fine arts. “This is an opportunity to proudly support and celebrate some of the underrepresented artists in our region.”

Deadline for submissions – including contact information, 3-5 images of proposed art and artist’s statement – is midnight Oct. 19.

There is no fee to submit art. All media will be considered. Artists must identify as female, and work must be ready to hang at the time of acceptance.

For more information or to submit an entry, contact Christenson at 509-372-7285 or peter.christenson@tricity.wsu.edu with the subject heading “WA Women Artists.”
