Competitions Drawn: 8th Annual International Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: February 25, 2021 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual 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 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.
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.
The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’… see more.
JURY & CURATOR
This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several member volunteer panel of professional artists and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise relative to art and design. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will design the exhibit from the jury-approved pool.
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.
$40 for up to four entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in our exhibitions. It is required that works are indicated as either “for sale” or not for sale (NFS) on the submitted entry form. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.
Works will be insured while on gallery premises. Insurance covers theft, vandalism, damage caused by gallery patrons or staff.
