What Makes this event different?

This is the first time this theme is being explored in our community through the means of a Juried Exhibition. Taking place in Staten Island, New York, we will attempt to open up discussion of this social issue as interpreted by artists for the community to learn and for a certain level of exposure to be reached from the audience expected to attend from the outer boroughs.

We are looking for the artist's use of the medium and excellence in relation to the concept, movement, and how fully the artist’s intention or concept is presented and realized. The juror’s awards will reflect that artistic judgment. Accepted submissions may include Oil, Watercolor, Acrylic, Pastel, Sculpture, Mixed Media, Photography,  Drawing, Print, plus Textile and Video when part of an installation. Show Details:  An artistic exploration of the meaning of gender encompassing all the possibilities, the freedom of choice and societal reactions, and new ways of interpreting social norms. This juried show will explore gender roles, feminine and masculine archetypes, and our preconceived social norms: Where did they originate? Why were they enforced? How did they affect our society? We respect all forms of artistic vision and perspectives
