Gender roles and alcoholic beverages are laughable.  Out of town on business this week, I was sitting in the hotel bar watching women ordering glasses of wine and brightly-colored martinis while men ordered beer and brown liquors.  Really, people?  I know I live in the South, but do we really have to fulfill this stereotype.  Kudos to the couple in the corner– he ordered a daiquiri (umbrella included), and she order a shot of something brown.  You saved my night, folks.  This next call is all about challenging notions of gender.  Take a look…

Check out this Call for Entries for Appropriated Gender at the 1310 Gallery in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.  The entry fee is dirt cheap, and there is so much to say within this theme.  Investigate and enter…
