Love Letters to Feminism

Call to Artists :: The Works Gallery

Attention artists and art lovers!! Apply today to be a part of this exciting exhibit at the Works Gallery!


Love Letters to Feminism was born out of an opportunity to create an exhibition for the Women's Studies Program Gallery at the University of Alberta in the autumn of 2009.

Over the past three years, Love Letters has grown and travelled, exhibiting at conferences and symposia across Canada, including in Montreal, Toronto, and Ottawa, and is graced by contributions from men and women across Canada and around the world in letter, artwork, craft, and sound.

It'll be very exciting to share Love Letters wiph Edmonton and the local communities that have supported the success of this project thus far. The exhibit will be kicking off a week of events, beginning on International Women's Day, March 8th, 2012. More details to follow.

All contributions are welcome, no matter what the nature of your relationship with feminism is. Be part of the growing, expressive, inclusive dialogue! To learn more about the project and previous exhibitions, visit loveletterstofeminism.blogspot.com.

We want to know what kind of relationship you have with feminism:

  • Are you in a long-term relationship?
  • Is it unrequited love?
  • A love triangle?
  • Do you have a crush on feminism?
  • Perhaps you are having a lovers' quarrel?

Submissions to the exhibition should include:
  • An artwork/letter that has a maximum size of 8.5x11 inches.
  • Your name, mailing address, email address, and a short bio on a separate page.
*Please include the appropriate extra postage inside your envelope if you want your work returned.
  • Maximum 3 works per person.
Deadline: March 5, 2012

Work will be exhibited beginning March 8, 2012 in The Works Gallery, and will join the Love Letters Collection for future and online exhibitions (unless you indicate otherwise).
