Sept 7, 2019 is the Deadline to submit your email entry. The event date is Saturday, October 12. Creepy & Kooky Gallery Opening Event: (link will be available soon)

To celebrate our Creepy & Kooky Weekend event, we would like to display women's creepy or silly monster or halloween-themed artwork. That can include traditional “monsters” or creepers of your own creation if you like. We are not looking for violence or gore themes, as the accepted artwork will be hanging in our women’s resale store. All entries must be framed or otherwise ready-to-hang artwork.

Note: City Jen is an upscale resale boutique for women size L & Up. Please keep our audience in mind when submitting artwork.

We are seeking wall hanging mediums including but not limited to Digital Art, Painting, and Multi Media art. Artwork must be dropped off “ready to hang”. If you bring a canvas painting, please make sure you’ve attached a hanging wire.

This is a call for art to local Michigan women artists (when we say “women”, we include any artist that identifies as a woman).

We are also seeking artists that can sell from their table during the event (Saturday, October 12 from 11 am - 7 pm). Table space is extremely limited and priority for artist tables go first to artists with work in the gallery. Tables are free. If you can bring your own cash box and card reader, you keep 100% of your table profits. Not getting a table? We are planning to include an artist meet ‘n’ greet from 5pm - 7pm for any artists will artwork in our gallery.
