This is a juried exhibit for female and female-identifying artists who currently live in Colorado. We welcome female artists from all backgrounds and are seeking diverse perspectives and art from across our state.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Women’s Caucus for Art Colorado Chapter (WCACO) and will be shown at The Collective Community Arts Center in Lafayette, CO.

Most of us have experienced conflict with people who have different identities or ideologies than our own, and we are experiencing an uncommon time of discord in our world. This show explores the ways that art can represent these conflicts and differences as well as our commonalities and the ways we heal.

We are looking for art that represents issues that are important to you, including how they impact your personal relationships, your community, and our world.

How can you use your art to find common ground?
