Female artists in Texas are invited to submit art work in any media to the first juried exhibition in recent memory hosted by The University of Texas of the Permian Basin’s Art Department. The deadline for entries is August 23.
The show, “Fem Fantastico,” will highlight the strength, talent, and diversity of art created by Texas women, and juror will be Wendy Slatkin, Ph.D., who teaches art history at California State Polytechnic in Paloma, CA. Dr. Slatkin will lecture at UTPB on October 15 at 4 p.m. on historical women artists. She is the author of The Voices of Women Artists and Women Artists in History: From Antiquity to the Present. The show will open that evening with a free, public reception from 7-9 p.m. in the Nancy Fyfe Cardozier Gallery in UTPB’s Visual Arts Studios. The show closes November 21.

Each artist may enter up to three pieces, and there is no fee required for submission. A catalog will be compiled with images that accompany the entry forms. Prize money totaling $1,550 will be awarded to first, second, and third-place winners, and each participant will receive two copies of the exhibition catalog.
For more information or an entry form, please contact Dan Askew, gallery director, at askew_d@utpb.edu or phone 432-552-3288.
