The exhibit, presented by Women's and Gender Studies, will run from Monday to Nov. 20 and is titled "Where Are We Now?: Activism of the Everyday."

The annual show draws submissions locally, nationally and internationally. Themes focus on issues and ideas involving women, gender and feminism. The public will be able to view the exhibition at

Topics include women as global citizens, providers, voters entering an election year, lovers, activists and individuals. The art show will explore where women are headed and why it matters. In all, 62 artists will be represented.

"Oakton invited professional artists of all media who self-identify as women to submit a single work that provides social commentary on who we are, where we are going and what that means," said Lindsey Hewitt, coordinator of the WGS Program.
