Competitions 16th Annual Magnitude Seven

Manifest Creative Research GalleryCincinnati, Ohio, United States

Manifest Creative Research Gallery

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: April 21, 2020 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works no larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion).

Every year Manifest produces an exhibit of little works of art from around the world.

Each iteration of the exhibit brings in hundreds of powerful yet diminutive works for our jury to consider. Inevitably this results in a gallery full of diverse, compelling, and exquisite little gems. Manifest’s patrons eagerly await the Magnitude SEVEN event each year. This annual project is one of the most varied exhibits in our season. So we are always excited to offer this call to artists to submit works no larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion).

ELIGIBILITY
Magnitude SEVEN is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art that are 7″ or smaller not including framing or presentation parts not considered part of the artwork itself.

MEDIA
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media (including 2D, 3D, etc.), genre, subject matter, and content. The only limiting factor is size. There is no other thematic guideline.

Manifest’s carefully assembled juries made up of professional volunteers change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.

CASH AWARD
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.

PUBLICATION
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.

ENTRY FEE
$40 for up to four entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.

SALES
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.
