Collar Works – Troy, NY & Artist/Mother Podcast – Painting at Night

Artist/Mother Podcast and Collar Works are excited to announce an open call for entries for the third annual Painting at Night exhibition, juried this year by Judith Braun (she/her). As part of the Artist/Mother Podcast Community’s ongoing work to bring exposure to and provide opportunities for artists who are also mothers, the A/MP is seeking submissions for their annual group exhibition!

To imply that good art cannot be made in domestic spaces, or that a person cannot claim the title of artist without meeting arbitrary requirements is a patriarchal myth, one that artists who are mothers have been resisting for decades.

For this show, we would like you to offer a response, addressing the ways you are making excellent and inspiring work while also navigating your role as a mother. The work may respond to thematic obstacles such as domestic duties, lack of childcare, restraints on time, limited support, lack of space or resources.

Show us, through the work, how you are “Painting at Night”- making art as an Artist/Mother.

Submission Materials:

Artist information and Statement (150 words), Artist Bio (150 words), up to 5 images or videos.  Provide a corresponding list of Works (title, medium, date, size, price), website and social media handles.  Entry fee is $15, financial aid is available, contact

Guidelines + Information:

Juror will select works based on theme of show.  All mediums are welcome to apply.  All artwork must be ready to hang or install.  All artwork must be for sale, with artists receiving 100% of all sales. Artist is responsible for shipping and handling costs.

Selected artists will be notified by April 1, 2022.  All work must arrive at Collar Works on or by May 2, 2022.
