She Makes Art & She Performs
As we enter the Age of Aquarius, Liggett Studio is pleased to present a new twist to the Tulsa Women’s Exhibit for March with entries by:
Those who identify themselves as women and are 18 and older who make visual or use performing as their artforms.
Artists must live in the general Tulsa area (50 mile radius).
The kind (or media) of visual art is open to all forms that are original and performances may include storytelling, theatre, music, dance, singing, poetry, and any form of performance or combination of these forms and be no longer than 5-7 min.
All visual works must be for sale (with the exception of installation works) and
must not have been shown within a 100 mile radius before the exhibit opens.
Visual entries will include two jurying processes: first, an online virtual entry method and if accepted, an in-gallery method.
Performance entries must include a link to a video of the exact performance work for jurying.
Performances will be at Liggett Studio with very limited entry as well as online.
Installation works must have a good description as was well as a drawing of the artist’s concept and an example of previous work should be submitted and indicated as such.
Artists may enter up to 2 artworks per entry form with an entry fee of $10 each to defray costs. 2 artworks will be $20.
Sponsor: The exhibit will be an annual event and this year our sponsor is Sharon King Davis, a long time Tulsa resident and feminist leader as an arts advocate in our community.
Juror for Visual Art entries bio: Linda Stilley, noted artist and arts educator in our community, will be our judge. Linda’s work ranges from mixed media collage works to raku ceramic works. She has a Master of Teaching Arts degree. She states: “I’m looking for artworks that show me someone that has looked into themselves and expressed it -authenticity to self and her surroundings. I’m interested in experimentation in a well-crafted work.”
Juror for Performance entries bio: Amber Whitlatch is a Tulsa-based arts marketer who has almost three decades experience as a non-profit theatre company and live performance venue owner, the Nightingale Theatre. She says: "Now is the time to tell our stories. Live performance has the power to create symbiosis between artists and audience, forming a relationship-building feedback loop that informs and empowers our community. I want to see, hear and feel the stories that connect us as women, and as humans."
