Competitions TAPPED: Works by Artists and their Current or Former Instructors

Manifest Creative Research GalleryCincinnati, Ohio, United States

Manifest Creative Research Gallery

Opportunity Description

International Deadline: October 6, 2019 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works of art by current or former artist/teacher pairs.

The relationship between artists and their current or former instructors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. Out of respect for this artist-teacher bond, and in honor of instructors working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED every year, an annual exhibit that presents paired works of art by current or former artist/teacher pairs.

Submission to this exhibit may be initiated by either party. Artists will seek out an instructor who has been a key teacher to them or whose work they particularly respect and ‘tap’ them to participate in this project submission.

ELIGIBILITY
TAPPED is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art or design and each entrant must name at least one current or former instructor or student as an exhibiting companion.

MEDIA
Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media (including sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc.) Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and 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.

ENTRY
Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission process is preferred. However, discs may be submitted (see details on Prospectus).

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.
