Call for Entries Female Artists: Estel Gallery - Deadline: May 2, 2009

Estel Gallery is currently accepting submissions for its June/July 2009 exhibition Be a Doll. The show runs June 4 - July 25, 2009. The opening reception will be June 6, 2009. The deadline for submissions is May 2, 2009.

Dolls set the stage for women's societal conditioning. Through play and creativity girls project who they want to be. In Be a Doll female artists explore through their artwork themes of what it means to be a woman in today's world, how women see themselves, or what women want to be.

Eligibility: Open to any female artist over the age of 18. Please feel free to share this announcement with those who are eligible and may be interested in participating.

Acceptable Media: Any media.

Fee: $10 for a total of five entries.

Participation: Emailed submissions and/or websites sent for consideration WILL NOT be considered. You may send images using the following guidelines.

3. An Artist's Statement about your work or any comments you feel necessary to fully appreciate your work. (Please limit to no more than one page.
