Deadline: July 29th, 2016, midnight PST
Open to all northern California resident artists 18 years and over. The goal of this competition is to choose five “emerging” artists who will be given an opportunity to exhibit either a body of work or a site-specific installation within a portion of the Museum gallery. Age is not a factor. For the purposes of this exhibition the definition of emerging artist is: an artist who is the principal creator of new work, shows significant potential yet is under-recognized, and who has some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishments. We welcome the opportunity to support works that embody diverse cultural perspectives. “Northern California artists” are defined as artists working and living in one of the following areas: San Jose area north to the California border and east to the California border.
Only online entries with digitally uploaded images will be accepted. If proposing a site-specific installation please include a brief description of concept in your “Statement specific to entry”. A visit to the Museum gallery prior to entry would be advisable. Entry fee.
