Call for Art
TVAA Downtown Gallery
Frida Kahlo – Without Boundaries
November 1 – 30, 2016
Reception Nov. 6, 2-4pm
Frida Kahlo continues to be a popular cult figure, more than sixty years after her death. Kahlo overcame much physical suffering as a young woman, and later struggled personally and artistically to find her way as an artist in a male-dominated culture.
Research into her life reveals her strong interest in politics, art, and animals, her rejection of society’s values, and her magnetic bond to her husband, artist Diego Rivera.
Those wishing to explore this fascinating and surprising artist will find a wealth of information on the Internet. Images of her paintings are also available to those interested in seeing her extraordinarily personal and autobiographical creations.
For this show we are requesting art about, influenced by, or in the style of Frida Kahlo. All media welcomed. Artists are invited to submit up to three entries (jpgs at 72 dpi and no longer than 1800 pixels on longest side) to Curator Mary Ann Turner by October 20th at firstname.lastname@example.org. Prospectus is available on the TVAA website: www.tvaa.org.
