Open Call: Best in Show at Girls’ Club


Girls’ Club is seeking submissions for Best in Show, an open call exhibit taking place during the May 26 artwalk event – Bark Walk – during the monthly Artwalk event in Fort Lauderdale at two venues: Girls’ Club and Madeline Denaro Studio.

Accepted work must be ready to hang and artists must be able to drop off at Girls’ Club Warehouse, 723 NE 2 Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL, by Wednesday, May 23 to participate.

One artwork from the exhibit will be purchased and welcomed into the Girls’ Club Collection. The collection consists of over 800 works of art from mostly – but not exclusively – contemporary female artists. Girls’ Club founders Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz began collecting over 30 years ago, and have amassed a vast collection of international, national and local artists. The collection is used by Girls’ Club to educate, inspire and provide resources for exhibitions, public programming, publications and web projects.
