The show features the work of over 20 female and female identifying artists members from the Women’s Caucus for Art, Philadelphia Chapter (WCAP), a women artists advocacy group, and Women Holler!, a grass roots, Philadelphia based support network for multiracial female artists. The two organization have made a commitment to intersectionality through collaboration and dialog. Now! is the first manifestation of this collaboration.

Now! represents a diverse range of ideas, modes of expression and methodologies from members from both groups, and as its title states, this is a demonstration of the of the an urgent call for change through the power of female artistic agency. Using a blind jury, entries from Women Holler were selected by Natalie Merritt and Virginia Maksymowicz from the WCAP, while entries from the WCAP were selected by Pauline Houston McCall and Sheena Garcia of Women Holler! Women Holler! and WCAP are proud to present recent works by Priscilla Bell, Sarah Bloom, Lucy Gans, Sheena Garcia, Karen Karuza, Liz Krick, Pauline Houston McCall, Reyna Howkins, Bonnie MacAllister, Constance McBride, Selena Nunez, Wanda Payne, Iffat Pugh, Susan Richards, Marilyn Rodriguez, Susan Shipley, and Marcie Ziskind.
