Call for Expression of interest | International Women’s Day exhibition at Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale
We invite female Gippsland artists to submit an expression of interest to be part of a shared exhibition at the Gippsland Art Gallery, level 2, Port of Sale Saturday 22 February to Sunday 12 April 2020.
The exhibition theme is Powerful Together, Uniquely Different – celebrating women’s collective and individual strengths, while recognising our unique differences.
Our aim for this exhibition is to support female artists by increasing their visibility, while also celebrating women’s achievements, strengths and unity for women’s empowerment.
Gippsland Women’s Health is the lead organisation for gender equity, women’s health, prevention of violence against women, and family violence system leadership in Gippsland. We work to improve women’s health, wellbeing and freedom of choice by advancing gender equity and working to prevent violence against women. Our vision is for an equal and respectful Gippsland for all women. Artwork that particularly connects with our priority areas and our vision is sought.
To celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8), there will be a First Friday talk in the exhibition space, level 2 at the gallery on Friday 6 March, 2pm.
