Competitions Transcendence: A Call for Works About Going Beyond the Normal
NOTE: This opp listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!
International Deadline: September 8, 2019 – The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists to submit works which in some way address the theme of Transcendence.
Artists are encouraged to take a broadly creative view of the theme. Our multi-member juries embrace surprise, creative solutions, and most of all exceptionally well put together visual art. The bottom line is the work should address the general theme discussed above in some way, even if subtle and understated.
ELIGIBILITY & MEDIA
Transcendence is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works which address the broad theme described above. Submitting works shown previously in Manifest’s physical gallery exhibits is discouraged.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s carefully assembled juries of professional and academic advisors change from project to project, and have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.
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.
AWARDS & CASH PRIZES
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’. Winner will be determined by a final end-of-year jury from among a pool of all top-scoring works from each exhibit’s jury process across the current exhibition season… see more
$40 for up to four entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
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.
