This is an open call exhibit for residents of New York and Pennsylvania. Priority is given to local artists. Work is encouraged to explore issues surrounding sexual expression, sexual orientation, gender expression, reproduction, sexual health and consent. The call is very broad and work may address all sides of these issues. 
The jury reserves the right to reject work that is disrespectful. Artists of any gender expression or sexual orientation are encouraged to submit work, but all artists must be 18 years or older to have work in the show. 
  • Up to two pieces of artwork may be submitted
  • An accompanying statement must comment on each artwork and its relationship to the theme
  • Artwork may be new or old
  • Pedestal, Floor Standing, or Wall art may be submitted
  • Not all work will be accepted and some work may be disqualified due to failure to meet submission criteria
  • Only work submitted through this jury process will be considered for this show
  • Please see the online submission form for all other details concerning submission criteria, delivery, and installation.
