Call for Submissions Drawn 2017: International Call for Drawing
International Deadline: February 20, 2017 – Manifest Creative Research Gallery calls for artists to submit works of drawing in any media relevant to the practice (including non-traditional approaches), any style, and any genre (fine art, illustration, design, conceptual, realism, etc.).
This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental. The only criteria beyond excellent quality is that works must qualify as drawing, including that which tests the boundaries of the discipline.
DRAWN is open to everyone. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which qualify in some considerable way as drawing.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media applicable to the practice and discipline of drawing. Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This project will be juried by a 5-9 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise.
Manifest Press will produce a high quality hard-cover publication documenting each entire season of exhibits, artists, and works shown. This continues Manifest’s commitment to long-term documentation and dissemination of our projects, and the expansion of physical exhibits into a broader geography and time frame, while also bringing all exhibits together under one cover each year to create a better product which will be more valuable to the public, teachers, libraries, and exhibiting artists.
$36 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry.
SALE OF ARTWORK
Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in our exhibitions. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.
