Transgender Awareness Month art show looking for submissions

Ally Picard, local photographer (Bloodhound Photography), nail artist (Nailed by Ally),¬†and previous qPDX contributor has probably caught you giving your best Zoolander stare at some club night you can’t remember but had the best time at. Her work is both fun and insightful. And now she’s been given the reigns to curate an art show for the Q Center this November.

November is Transgender Awareness Month so the community center aims to create a show that includes “…trans-identified and queer-identified artists whose work highlights and celebrates the diverse transgender community/experience.”

I have no doubt Picard will put together a greatly varied and interesting show, nor would I be surprised if it was also fashionable and compelling. So, do you want to be a part of that magic? Well, I think you should be. But you only have the week left to enter, as submissions are due by Sunday October 16th.

If you are interested in submitting work, email Ally Picard at

Please include

  • 1-3 examples of your work in jpeg form
  • a short artist statement
