[DEC. 2, 2006]  POCATELLO, Idaho -- A national women's art exhibit, "Women Celebrating: Their Strength and Vision," at Idaho State University is issuing a call for original artwork by women artists, both professional and amateur.

Hosted by the Women's Studies Program at Idaho State, the eighth annual juried show features artists from throughout the United States displaying various media, including ceramics, glasswork, painting, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, jewelry, metalsmithing, photography and fiber arts such as book art, weaving, basketry and quilting. The show will run March 19-30, 2007.

Artists may submit up to three entries for consideration. One slide or high-resolution digital image on CD or DVD for each piece of artwork may be entered. The deadline to enter is Feb. 2, 2007.

Originality of expression, uniqueness and fine workmanship are critical selection components. Exhibition theme is considered but with broad interpretation.

Judging for the "Women Celebrating" art show is a two-step process. First, all entries received are reviewed by two professional artists and a layperson with a women's studies background. Pieces receive a score between one and five from each judge. Those with the highest combined scores will be placed in the show.

Artwork subsequently displayed in the show is then judged by an anonymous jury panel that includes professional artists. Each piece will receive a score between one and 10 from each judge. Entries with the highest combined scores will be awarded best of show, second place, third place and merit awards. A People's Choice Award will also be given. Cash prizes accompany awards.

Interested artists can request an entry form by calling Susan Green Barger, assistant director of the Women's Studies Program at Idaho State University, at 208-282-5197 or go to for a form and more information. A nonrefundable entry fee of $25 for nonstudents and $10 for students must accompany submissions.
