Daily: Nasty Women

We’ve been fans of The Carrack in Durham for awhile. In case you aren’t familiar with The Carrack, it’s an artist-centered, volunteer-run, zero-commission exhibition space. The space hosts new exhibitions every two weeks, and tons of performances, workshops, and other creative gatherings. We are so impressed with The Carrack’s Director Laura Ritchie and the good work she is doing for the arts (and artists) in NC.

The Carrack’s upcoming exhibition, Nasty Women Exhibition, is the Durham version of the NYC Nasty Women Exhibition organized by Roxanne Jackson and Jessamyn Fiore. The idea behind the original exhibition was to depict solidarity among artists who identify with being Nasty Women in the face of threats to roll back women’s rights, individual rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and immigrant rights.

Here are the details:

  • Artists submitting for the Nasty Woman Exhibition must identify as Nasty Women.
  • All works submitted (so long as you follow the submission guidelines) will be exhibited.
  • Only one work per artist will be accepted.
  • Drop off your art on Sunday, January 15 from 12pm – 5pm.
  • Artwork must be ready to hand or display.
  • Artwork cannot exceed 48″ x 48″ or 15 pounds.
  • Don’t forget to bring your completed submission form.
  • All proceeds from the sale of artwork will support Planned Parenthood.
  • The exhibition opens on Friday, January 20 with a reception during Third Friday Durham and will remain on view through January 28.
  • Pick up: Sunday, January 29 from 11am – 2pm.

Additionally, The Carrack is currently accepting applications for exhibition proposals (due January 16, February 13, and March 13, 2017. Details can be found here. Good luck!
