Art Emerge Gallery announces an art call for the gallery’s inaugural Online Juried Art Competition for inclusion in, "Late Winter Storms." The gallery invites all 2D and 3D artists (including photography and digital arts) from around the world to make online submissions into the competition for possible inclusion in the gallery’s April 2023 online group art exhibition.
The exhibition, "Late Winter Storms," invites artists to demonstrate through their work how climate change is affecting the world. "How do we as artists address climate change? Is it the title, the colors, the thoughts behind the work, or is it all of the above?"
Art reflects the world, which is experiencing major issues at this time from earthquakes to rising sea levels. The population of the world is growing as are new diseases and issues of famine and drought. This year, late winter storms have produced dramatic temperature swings that are causing havoc and breaking the norms.
The gallery invites artists, regardless of where they reside, to apply to this competition by submitting their best representational or abstract art and photography (maximum of 3 images or files).
Winning artists will be selected by our juror to exhibit their works in the April exhibition and receive an official "Curator's Choice Award" from Art Emerge Gallery. The Juror is an award-winning internationally acclaimed curator that has curated over 200 exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe.
The juror will choose one artist that will receive a cash prize of $500 and a special award. Winners receive extensive worldwide publicity and promotion. Their works and the exhibition will be published for sale and promoted on ArtEmerge's website, through various global press outlets, as well as paid social media advertising to maximize exposure. The "Late Winter Storms" exhibition will commence in late April with the selected artists.
The deadline to apply to this art competition is March 31st, 2023. Artists must upload their work and pay the $30 entry fee by the deadline to be entered into the competition. Winners announced in early April. International artists are welcome! Press and distribution are global.
