Artemis Journal 2020

 2020 Artemis launch

September 4, 2020

Due to the health crisis facing our community, the annual launch originally slated for June 5, has been rescheduled to September 4 at the Taubman Museum of Art.  The journals will be released in July. For more information go to our store front. (20% discount for subscriptions)

Here is a sneak preview of the cover by the acclaimed artist, Dorothy Gillespie. Dorothy graced our very first cover back in 1977 when we created the journal as a result of writing workshops for abused women. Dorothy was an avid supporter of public art and a feminist who chartered her way through the art world in New York City. Our 1977 cover created a stir and became the first art mural in downtown Roanoke, Va. A Roanoke native, Dorothy Gillespie (1920–2012) would have turned 100 this June. She remains the most nationally recognized artist who was born and raised in the Roanoke Valley and taught at Radford University in the nearby New River Valley. Artemis Journal is pleased to partner with the Taubman Museum of Art by celebrating Dorothy Gillespie.

Celebration! 100th Anniversary of United States 19th Amendment

Year 2020

Marks the 100th anniversary of the
19th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution
giving women the right to vote

Our challenge to artists and writers

What does freedom of expression mean to you?
In the year of 1920, American women were granted the right to express themselves by voting.

Today, non- disclosure agreements (NDA) for sexual abuse are still used to silence women. In looking forward to next year, Artemis Journal supports the movement for free expression in all areas of our lives.

Our theme is open-ended and not limited to gender or specific ideas regarding artistic expression. However, that being said, the editors hope your submissions are sensitive to our mission and celebrate this Season of Women!

In memory of the late Toni Morrison
(1931-2019)

 

“This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.”
                                                          *Toni Morrison
