GUTSY Jurors

It's about that time, the call for our first exhibition, Gutsy: Taking the Fear Factor Out of Feminism is just about to close (tomorrow). So that means it's time for the adjudication process to begin!

Guest Juror, Katie Bachler, and TFAP-B's Allison Gulick will be looking at your work!

As an artist and educator Katie Bachler's work explores personal ideas of home, a concept she's exploring as part of her residency here in Baltimore at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Katie thinks a lot about people, and the relation of people to the places they call home, and how things come to matter. In her collaboration with The Feminist Art Project - Baltimore Katie will be co-jurying GUTSY: Taking the Fear Factor Out of Feminism and striving to contextualize Baltimore's own feminist history. In addition to her residency here in Baltimore, Katie is also the Director of Community Outreach and Programs for the Women's Center for Creative Work (WCCW) based out of Los Angeles. In her role at WCCW Katie liaises with the public on a physical level, going into neighborhoods and communities; networking with other people and groups who are interested in similar ideas. The WCCW is about to host it's third Women's Dinner, this one is about Intergenerational Feminisms!
