Theme: To honor the centennial anniversary of Women’s right to vote in the United States, Art Works Downtown seeks artwork for the exhibition 100 Years of Freedom. Submissions should celebrate, be inspired by, question, or relate to the concept of freedom. The concept—or value—of freedom is an ongoing work in progress, producing magnificent beauty as well as grievous devastation. The intent of this exhibition is to deepen our dialogue regarding freedom and equality through the language of visual art. As an artist, how can you contribute to this dialogue?

Applying for a call:

Uploading images to your “Portfolio” and applying to a call for entries are two different processes. When you apply for an exhibition you will need to choose entries from your Portfolio by checking little boxes next to the images. If you only have three images in your Portfolio, you must check the box for each entry to submit that entry.  

Make sure to “PREVIEW” before checking out. Once you click “CHECK OUT” you can NOT change or correct your application.

Checking Out, Payment and Coupon Codes:

When you have looked at your application “PREVIEW” and you see all of your entry images, click “CHECK OUT.” This will begin the payment process. Follow the prompts to pay for your entries. Only credit cards are accepted. If you are an AWD Artist Member you can use your coupon code to receive an entry fee discount. Simply follow the prompts until it asks you for the Coupon Code (you will not see this right away). Then enter the code and proceed.

Philosophical Understanding:

We understand that the online application process can be frustrating and hope you will overcome technology to participate in our exhibitions. While the CAFÉ.org service is far from perfect, it is still a very helpful service for AWD and for many artists. As you apply through this process, we encourage you to take a deep breath, think logically (bnot emotionally) and take your time to thoroughly read the prompts and consider the buttons. If you are digitally challenged, you may want to find someone who is not overly challenged by the digital realm. Offer them a cup of coffee, fresh baked bread or small payment and remember that the digital world is always changing at an alarming rate. We’re just trying to keep up.
