Competitions Regional Showcase: New England & Gulf South
U.S. Multi-State Deadline: October 3, 2018 – Manifest is seeking entries to the New England & Gulf South Regional Showcase. This exhibit has no predefined expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected. The only criteria for entry is that works must qualify as works of visual art made by artists living in the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, or Connecticut, OR the states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida.
Note that this is one call for two simultaneous exhibits, each occupying a separate gallery. Entrants will indicate residency in either a GULF SOUTH state or NEW ENGLAND state when submitting.
Open to all traditional and non-traditional 2D and 3D media within the framework of the theme.
Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art. The jury’s directive is to seek and score accordingly the best quality work possible.
The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one 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.
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media.
JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several member panel of professional 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 make the final selections 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 three entries submitted. $10 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. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork sold during the exhibition.
