Call for artists - "Bodies" Juried Exhibit


February 2014 Juried Exhibit

North Seattle Community College Art Gallery

Seattle, Washington


Artists of any media are invited to submit work for a juried show on the theme of “Bodies.”  We are looking for a wide range of responses that reflect the physical, experiential, political, historical or emotional aspects of the body.  Artists that re-interpret or expand beyond the traditional aspects of figure drawing and painting are especially encouraged to apply. 

Artists must apply through


Elizabeth A. Brown, Ph.D., former Chief Curator of the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, is an art historian, writer, institutional consultant, and freelance curator.  Prior to her 11 years at the Henry, she served as curator and chief curator at the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College (1989-92), and the University Art Museum, UC Santa Barbara (1992-2000).  While completing her doctorate in modern art history (Columbia University, January 1989) she worked at the Museum of Modern Art, the New Museum, Artists Space, and Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; and the National Gallery, Washington, DC.  Brown's scholarship explores the range of vanguard art practices, focusing on the artist's complex intellectual working process, the functions of art objects, and the viewers' direct experiences of fully realized works of art.
