New exhibit seeks photos of women living their lives
Do you know a woman who is the star of her own life?
The Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga and A Step Ahead Foundation are inviting local artists over 18 years old to submit up to three “photographic images of women fully experiencing life, whether that means working, studying, creating, hiking, traveling, interacting with children, playing with pets, or just relaxing,” for the 2015 exhibition “Leading Roles.”
Scheduled to run from March 26 through May 1, 2015, “Leading Roles” ties in with the mission of A Step Ahead Foundation Chattanooga, which strives to “ensure that, any Chattanooga-area woman seeking birth control, has access to long-term, reversible methods regardless of her ability to pay.”
According to organizers, the idea connecting “Leading Roles” to their sponsors is that planning pregnancies and having an access to effective birth control, “enables women to make (and stick to) life plans—whether those plans include pursuing an education, learning a trade, exploring the world, or advancing a career,” and being able to continue to do so, if or when she feels ready to be a mother, thus allowing the woman be a “leading role” in her own life.
All entries must be submitted as a high-resolution digital image to Ann Treadwell by Thursday, Feb. 16, 2015. Photographers will be notified if their photograph(s) are selected by Feb. 20, 2015.
