As artists, we sincerely appreciate the years of devotion and hard work that each and every one of you has invested to develop your artistic talents and achieve this level of professionalism.  We wish you all the best as you take the steps to apply for this distinguished all-women's art show.

We use the online application process called Cafe Management.  It is an online juror system that allows you to upload your jpeg files into a database so they can be viewed by the jurors for the upcoming show.  Please go to https://www.callforentry.org/index.php and begin the process of applying to Women's Works 2012

Please provide an artist statement, the size(s) of your work(s) and the price for each of the pieces you are submitting.  We ask you to identify the media and select among the choices provided  for you.  Please note we take a 30% commission fee for any artwork that is sold.  The cost to enter this anniversary show will be $35.00 for three jpeg images. This year we are providing artists with a website where you can upload your website link and any news related items that you wish to share.  This is a new way to reach out to other artists and create a community where we each can more easily connect with each other. 

Please note that all guidelines for Cafe Management are on the website. You will find information for using the Cafe system at:


Also take note of our policy for shipping artwork. We will only accept artwork that has the return prepaid shipping label attached, and has a prepaid pick-up from The Court House. We will return your work during the month of May.  If your work does not follow these instructions, we will contact you, and you will need to set up a pick up from The Court House.  Please keep in mind that the Court House operation hours are as follows
