And thank you, artists, for your participation in this Call for Entry / Exhibition.

The goal of this exhibition is to showcase works that are usually excluded from other exhibitions at the Barn due to size. In addition to including the works of women artists who usually express themselves in big ways, we encourage those who do not, TO GO BIG. Two-dimensional works with a unified unframed measurement of at least 65 inches (width + height) and three-dimensional works with a unified measurement of at least 110 inches (width + height + depth) will be considered for the exhibition. Excluded Media: Computer-generated art.

This exhibition has been organized by Big Art Collaborative (BAC) to support The Barn | Woman’s Art Club Cultural Center. The members are Bobbi Thies (chairwoman), Bev Seibert (secretary/treasurer), Judith Affatato, Bonita Goldberg, Claire Long, and Marie Smith.

Selection: Veronique Hammons will curate this exhibition to represent as many artists as possible; however, due to the size limitations of the exhibition spaces, some submissions may have to be declined for that reason alone.

Chris Payne will judge the exhibition for prize awards.

Eligibility: Women only. Must be at least 18 years of age and reside in Ohio, Indiana, or Kentucky. Please Note — accepted artwork must be hand delivered.
