Radiant Voices is a virtual exhibition dedicated to highlighting the dynamic talents of contemporary women artists from around the world. Juried by a distinguished juried panel of art world professionals including Ekaterina Popova, Alicia Puig, Marina Press Granger, and Liza Zhurkovskaya, we aim to create a vibrant and inclusive show that honors and amplifies the voices of women artists.

Eligibility: Women artists of all backgrounds, disciplines, and experience levels are invited to submit their work for consideration. Must be 18+ to submit.

We accept all 2D & 3D mediums, including painting, drawing, photography, digital, prints, fiber art, collage, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, and installation art. We do not accept film or video at this time.

About Our Jurors –

Ekaterina Popova is the founder of Create! Magazine, The Art Queens Society, host of the Art & Cocktails Podcast and co-author of The Complete Smartist Guide and The Creative Business Handbook. Popova is an artist who believes that our entire life is a canvas and we have the power to create anything we desire. Her mission is to empower artists and give them the tools to take responsibility for their own career and find validation and success from within. Popova spent the past decade growing her painting practice and focusing on depicting the interior in a series of lush and colorful paintings. These works helped her explore and heal her relationship with the idea of “home,” which carries a wide array of emotions for humans, especially immigrants. The works have been recognized, exhibited, and published internationally.

Alicia Puig is the curator & co-founder of PxP Contemporary, Director of Business Operations for Create! Magazine, an arts writer, frequent guest host of The Create! Podcast, and co-author of The Complete Smartist Guide and The Creative Business Handbook. She has worked in the arts industry for galleries, museums, art fairs, private collectors, art publications, and an auction house for over ten years both in the US and abroad. You can find Alicia’s writing featured in magazines and on blogs including Create! Magazine, Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, All She Makes, CandyFloss Magazine, Art She Says, and Artspiel, among others. Additionally, Alicia has served as a guest curator for Hastings College, All She Makes, Create! Magazine, Rise Art, and SHOWFIELDS.

Marina Press Granger is the founder of The Artist Advisory, a New York City consulting firm that offers career guidance to visual artists, galleries, and art-minded businesses. Granger worked in the NYC galleries and museums for nearly 15 years before starting her company. She curated numerous gallery exhibitions and art fair booths during that time. In addition to using analytical business acumen acquired through years of experience and a BA & MA in Art History, Granger also uses the Principles of Classical Chinese Feng Shui to enhance the success of the artists and businesses she works with. You may read about Marina Granger and The Artist Advisory in Forbes, The Art Gorgeous, The Art Zealous, Time Out New York, and more. Granger was born in Kyiv, Ukraine, and has lived in New York since 1991.

Liza Zhurkovskaya, aka Curator on the Go, is a Toronto-based curator & art advisor. For more than eight years, Liza worked directly with artists helping them make a living through their creative work. In 2020, Liza founded Kefi Art Gallery to support her artists and assist her corporate and private clients with acquiring original art and curating their collections. Liza is known as a community leader who has brought hundreds of artworks to the public eye. Her goal is to support artists while reminding everyone that art is part of a healthy community — and a healthy mind, body and soul.


In addition to selecting a wide range of artists to be featured in our virtual exhibition, our team will award special prizes to a select number of artists.
