This is for women artists, and is open to many different media. If you feel this group does not represent you, please consider entering your work in another category if that is more appropriate, or any of the other groups of art and artists that you wish. An individual artwork can also be entered in more than one category.
If you are a Viewer and visitor, please take a look below at some of the art that has been created in the 9 counties of the Bay Area and Sacramento and Santa Cruz counties in this first ever regional series of art prizes. There are other categories you will find very interesting, please visit this one and all the others as well.
And if you are a viewer, please donate a tax-deductible donation or purchase a print from some other Bay Area artists who want to sell some of their work to help fund this first ever regional Prize for Art!
If you are an artist you may upload up to eight (8) of your works of art for $10 each. Your work will be reviewed and then placed immediately up on this website for everyone to see, in one of more of the juried categories. Your work will then be eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable mention. There will be one winner at $500 and an essay and 5 honorable mentions at $100 each! The awards will be cash awards or a gift certificate to a Bay Area store specializing in art-related services for the Women Artists group. As well there are 2 more voted awards which your work would also be eligible for, to be voted on after the Prize for Art closes November 1 and voting ends on November 15!
Each category is awarded separately. Each artist is eligible for one award per category. Works that have won in the previous Prize for Art are not eligible for the 2023 Sheridan Prize for Art. The Winner and Honorable Mentions will be announced here as soon as possible after November 21! Please also come back after that date to see the results. Good luck everyone!
