War & Art

One of the most unsettling rooms in an important art exhibit at New York's Neue Galerie is a room in which numerous empty frames are hanging, with guesses about which paintings might have been in them. The paintings themselves were all lost or destroyed by the Nazis. Encouraged by Hitler, most Nazis (Joseph Goebbels was the rare exception) considered everything but the most hidebound, traditionally realistic paintings and sculptures to be "degenerate," a threat to the Aryan ideals of German culture. To bring this home, there was a series of "exhibitions of shame" designed to teach the German public to despise modernist art. This culminated in a major show in Munich in 1937, which later toured Germany and Austria. The public crowded to see it. That same summer in Munich, a counterexhibit called "The Great German Art Exhibition," which included at least one work owned by Hitler, showed what the Nazis thought art should be. The Neue Galerie's exhibit, called "Degenerate Art: The Attack on Modern Art in Nazi Germany, 1937," includes some 80 works from both of these landmark shows.  Read the full article on NPR here

Artists are ...

"Artists are people driven by the tension between the desire to communicate and the desire to hide."
        - Quote by D.W. Winnicott

Why did you become an artist?
And, what keeps you dreaming, believing and creating art?

Changes Underway with Women in Art 278

To better serve our readers and artists, we are modifying our magazine calendar. We are going to move from a monthly publication to quarterly: Publishing dates January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1. Each issue will offer more artists, which means more diversity! Women in Art 278 Magazine will continue to be free online as an e-magazine and a printed issue will be offered as well. We understand that some artists and readers pay a hefty tax when they receive international items so there is also a digital download option as well so they can print it locally if they prefer.

So, how does this affect our cover page contests? We will select a cover page artist without any themed restrictions or limitations. We may also have two featured artists (one on the front cover, one on the back cover) depending on the layout and size of the art submitted. That means two artists per issue may be featured. There is no additional cost for having an artist selected for the front or back cover. 

When artists submit their artwork, the submission process will remain the same. Artists may submit work for their individual artist pages. If they'd like to be considered for the cover, they may submit an additional piece of art along with a write up about the artwork. 

If you have any questions, please contact us! And, as always we invite you to  ...

June's Art Contest: Trafficking

We are currently accepting submissions for June's Cover Page Art Contest: Trafficking. We welcome literal and abstract interpretations. So, your art may cover freedom from trafficking instead of the darkness and evil and heartbreak of trafficking.

All artists who pay for a single or double-page spread in Women in Art 278 Magazine qualify for the cover page contest. Artists must provide a write up about the art they submit and how it connects with the theme. We welcome the write up in the artist's native language (in fact, we encourage it!).

How long should the write up be? It should be a minimum of 500 words but can easily write up to 1500 words or more. If you have any questions, we encourage you to read our Guidelines and Commonly asked Questions. The deadline to submit (for all issues) is on the 25th of the month. Art must be 300dpi, without any digital watermark and photographed well. Click here for our blog about how to photograph artwork successfully.

Please note, the artwork submitted for individual artist pages does not need to connect to the cover page contest theme.

We are pleased and honored to welcome new artists and returning ones. We hope you enjoy the variety of art presented in this issue and become a collector of some of their work. (Don't you sometimes wish you could make your home into a living museum filled to the rim of women in art whose art speaks to you?!)
