Call for Submissions


VIOLET STRAYS is pleased to announce IRIS: a zine created by & for woman-identifying artists and writers. We're joining together with the soon-to-launch online gallery The Blush Room and are currently seeking work that focuses on the female connection. In our experience, these relationships are often the ones where we can be our most candid selves, and within them exists a form of love, strength, empathy, and respect that is inimitable in other relationships in our lives. With this said, we want to leave this open to any and all artist interpretations, so please send us whatever you have that you think will fit! We're accepting all forms of two-dimensional visual art, as well as short form written pieces. 


The zine will coincide with an exhibition on Violet Strays, April 15 - 28th and will be released at a launch event at Flutter Studios on April 22nd.
