Voting Daughters is an exhibition aimed at celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. This exhibition calls on artists, regardless of gender identity, to comment on the ways women’s voices affect our contemporary landscape. All media and expressions are welcome for submission.
This exhibition is Free and Open to the Public. During the Opening Reception the Juror will be handing out three major awards. Two Juror’s Choice awards of $150 each and the best in show receives a “Going Solo” award. The “Going Solo” award allows the artist to be given a solo exhibition in our Gallery III space. The “Going Solo” winner from “Colorless”, Tanner Martine, will be showcasing his delicate and meditative works in ceramics. In our Ameristar Gallery Sue Rakers will be having her Emerging Artist show.

Mayer has a BFA from Ball State University and teaches traditional calligraphy at the Lillstreet Art Center in Chicago.
