CALL FOR ENTRY- MOOD: Frame of mind A WCAGA Juried Exhibit

Women's Caucus for Art of Georgia



Frame of mind

A WCAGA Juried Exhibit

  • noun: temporary state of mind or feeling.
  • adjective: inducing or suggestive of a particular feeling or state of mind.
This year the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia will be showing photo-based work for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. We are delighted to have this exhibition juried by V. Elizabeth Turk and are asking that you submit work around the theme of MOOD
Works will illustrate, suggest or convey a feeling or state of mind and/or leave the viewer in a certain mood. Mood can be personal, political, historical or cultural. What mood are you in? What is the general mood of the world? Depicting a mood involves entering into or visualizing a certain state of mind or connecting with a feeling. 
Questions to consider: What changes your mood? What are all the different kinds of moods? When we talk about our moods we sometimes talk about the mood of the evening, the mood of a group, the mood of an artistic movement or symphony, the mood of the country or the world…What kinds of moods do we experience? Funny, sad, good, angry, peaceful, somber, calm, mysterious moods among so many others. 
Help us understand MOOD from your frame of mind.

As individuals and societies, we witness injustices almost everyday. They materialize in different ways. Sometimes they are public and sometimes they are personal. We may feel traumatized by some, unable to verbalize our pain or our anger or we may feel empowered by others, prompting us to scream out and confront the source. Often times it feels like an avalanche of news lands on our screens or in our ears repetitively. It can be something about our current political status or it can be an injustice at work or within a personal relationship. No matter the injustice, it is upsetting and unsettling, traumatizing. Through psychology we have learned that the healthiest way to manage a traumatic experience is to share it with others, to exteriorize it somehow, to bear witness.
Continuing with our annual theme of Art of Protest, we invite you to submit artwork bearing witness to a situation you feel is important to highlight. We invite you to speak to us about what upsets you, what needs changing, what demands attention so that we may acknowledge it and help you process it.
