Every year, Baton Rouge Gallery and Venus Envy (a Missouri-based non-profit organization driven by women which positively affects everyone by empowering women through the arts) team up to present an exciting multimedia contemporary art exhibition showcasing the work of female artists in the southeastern United States. The 14th annual Venus Envy Baton Rouge (VE2012BR) exhibition will run April 17-26, 2012.
The theme for VE2012BR is “Too Much Pink?” Artists are invited to interpret and explore the theme as they choose.
From an early age, whether welcomed or not, girls and women are oftentimes faced with the color pink as a gender-identifying color. From advocacy (breast cancer awareness) to marketing, children’s toys to clothing and everything in between, pink is often a part of the female experience. Some despise the color’s prevalence while others seek it out. Others remain indifferent. With this exhibition, we invite artists to explore the role the color pink – and the causes, things and perceptions often associated with the color - plays in the development, life and experience of women. Whether works utilize the color pink or not will not affect their eligibility.
The online submission form will be made active shortly. Download the full prospectus here.
