Calls for Art

Shambhala Center Exhibit Opportunity for WCAGA and Shambhala Center Members

Recently Maxine Hess was offered a solo show at the Shambhala Center in Decatur. She spoke to the Center’s Executive Director and Chair of Community Relations about WCAGA. They met with me, Emily Getsay and Maxine to discuss having a WCAGA members’ exhibit in May of this year. The Center is comprised of 3 buildings. WCAGA members and artist members of the Center will have space in each of these buildings to exhibit work based on the theme, Keeping Women’s Voices Loud. The Center is offering the space for free and will be providing refreshments for the opening reception so there will be no fee for entering this exhibit. We estimate the Center can accommodate 35 works.

WHERE: Shambhala Center, 1447 Church St., Decatur, GA 30330

Keeping Women’s Voices Loud

Making art about the thoughts that weigh on our minds is one way that, as artists, we deal with those ideas. They find a voice in our choice of media and concept: political, personal, biological and/or cultural.

Whether our work is created with gentle nuances or bold, aggressive, to the point visuals, our creations are meant to be seen.

Shambhala Meditation Center, a place for contemplation presents a visualization of our thoughts.
