Show Me Your Neon

Gallery 1202 is looking for submissions for its inaugural group show, #ShowMeYourNeon. This show is an inclusive show celebrating all things female/women related. We are looking for works that uplift and embrace being female or a woman. Works that uncover and bring to light struggles that the “other” deals with on a daily basis. Works that honor the female figure, while rejecting the “gaze” are welcome. All genders are welcome, as are non-binary artists.

We are celebrating the opening of The Neon Exchange, a collaborative workspace for women in Downtown Gilroy. Gallery 1202 will be joining The Neon Exchange in September, opening a new space in this progressive venture. We believe strongly in a community filled with solidarity, unity and compassion. It is our goal to support artists from all walks of life, and we strive to connect these artists with our local community and abroad.

The opening reception will be held on November 23rd @ 7pm. The gallery will be holding a fundraiser for a local non-profit, Community Solutions, to help domestic violence victims.

The show will be featured online as well through Artsy, and will be posted for sale with permission of the artist.
