ABOUT THE SHOW

NASTY WOMEN LYNCHBURG ART EXHIBITION

WHEN: JANUARY 20 - February 3, 2017

WHERE: RIVERVIEWS ARTSPACE, SUITE 109

THIS EXHIBITION IS A FUNDRAISER

This exhibition is the sister of the Nasty Women Exhibition

Started by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore with a facebook post that read:
Hello female artists/curators! Lets organize a NASTY WOMEN group show!!! Who's interested??? 
The massive response has taken this call to arms into an ever expanding network of Nasty Women Artists & Art Organizers.

The works in this exhibition will be available for sale – 100% of the sale will go to Lynchburg Diversity Center.

WHO DO WE WANT INVOLVED?

Nasty Women Artists of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, gender or non-gender identifications, economic backgrounds, immigrants and non-immigrants. BAD HOMBRE? We want you to participate too.

EVERY ONE OF YOU NASTY WOMEN, LET’S DO THIS!!!

THIS EXHIBITION IS COMPLETELY INCLUSIVE

Because of the huge amount of interest already generated in our sister cities we have decided this exhibition will be completely INCLUSIVE. If you follow the submission guidelines your work will be featured in the exhibition. Our curatorial team will coordinate with you and facilitate its presentation – but no work will be rejected UNLESS IT DOES NOT MEET THE SUBMISSION CRITERIA* OR IF WE RUN OUT OF ROOM DUE TO THE AMAZING AMOUNT OF NASTINESS IN LYNCHBURG.

If you are not sure whether or not your work meets the below criteria, please shoot us a message and we will be in touch!

The works in this exhibition will be available for sale – 100% of the sale will go to Lynchburg Diversity Center.  

We ask you price your work between $10 – $100. We want to keep the prices very affordable so that many many people in attendance feel they are able to purchase one or multiple pieces in support of this important organization.

IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO SELL YOUR WORK we will still accept it because we understand how valuable it is to show your work as part in solidarity with other Nasty Women. We will mark your work NFS, however we ask that you then either:

  1. Donate a second work that can be sold

  2. Make a donation yourself to the Lynchburg Diversity Center
