2021-2022 Exhibit Schedule


With the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, many Americans worry about the protection of their rights moving forward. If you feel your freedom to exist is under attack, we encourage you to use your voice and share your talents with us at Bourne-Schweitzer Gallery. Local artists of the Kentuckiana area are invited to submit work centered on the politics of personhood and the experience of marginalized identities. All artists and all mediums are welcome, from visual arts to performances, poetry, music, and video art.


The exhibition will be hosted at the Bourne-Schweitzer Gallery in New Albany from October 21st to November 12th. The inside gallery is equipped with hanging wall space, shelves, and open flooring for sculpture. The Art Alley space outside of the gallery is also available for music, performances, installations, and more!


This show is intended as a space for artists and creatives to express their fears, feelings, and experiences in the wake of unprecedented political changes. No hate speech or calls for violence will be tolerated and anyone aiming to escalate or inflame will be asked to leave immediately.


If you would like to further this show by scheduling a music event or performance, petition signing, poetry reading, guest speaker, or other additions to the event and exhibition, contact Julie Schweitzer by email at Julie@artseed.art or by phone at (502) 649 - 3320 for more details on the space.



All artists may submit up to two original pieces or proposals for performance and/or events. Artists may also submit works in progress. All mediums are welcome, digital works may be projected or printed to be displayed. Two-dimensional pieces must be wired for display. No saw tooth hangars. Artists must provide any special equipment needed for the production/display of their piece or event.  If your piece or event requires installation or further discussion of the space available, include these details in your submission.


When submitting, please include your Name, title of your piece, and a professional quality photo of the work. Your submission should also include the dimensions of the work, a brief artist statement, and any other relevant information or questions regarding the display of your pieces. Proposals for events or performances may be submitted, as well as in-progress works.

The exhibition will be juried by Julie Schweitzer and Sarah Cola.


Submissions must be submitted by September 15th.


To submit work or ask questions email Sarah Cola at Sarah@artseed.art
