Deadline: 4 February 2019. Twenty artists will be selected for an online group exhibit, “Local Views 2019” at Gallery25N; the exhibit and artists will be extensively marketed worldwide to over 30,000 people including art buyers, gallery owners, curators, collectors, etc. Participants must be 18 years of age or older working in any still art medium. One artist’s work will be selected to receive the “Christopher E. Burke Fine Art Grant” of $500. That artist’s work will become the image of the exhibition and will be used on the invitation, video title screen and on all online marketing.
Theme and Selection:
“Local Views”— Artists around the world respond to local geographies, landmarks, and histories, as well as the sway of local visual culture. The impact of globalization on the modern art world allows for increased cultural understanding across time and space. Aided by the internet and mass media, awareness of the vitality of contemporary art in localities around the globe has grown exponentially. The curators will select artwork representing localities (for example: sites, areas, neighborhoods, regions, environments, scenes) as interpreted by the artist. The curators will select the winners based on originality, uniqueness of vision conveyed, quality of execution, and how clearly the artist presents individual style and technique in each work.
All submissions, which can be expressed from representational to abstract, are welcome. The artists and exhibit will be extensively marketed with press releases, social media marketing, event listings calendars, and will also be featured in “Art Market NewsTM” with over 30,000 subscribers worldwide. We look forward to receiving your works.
Eligibility: This competition is open to all artists and photographers 18 years of age or older. Entries must be created in a still medium: painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, digital, prints, fiber art, collage or installation art.
