Jonathan Ferrara Gallery (LA), International Call for Entries: 23rd Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS Juried Exhibition
Deadline: June 17th, 2019
The Jonathan Ferrara Gallery proudly hosts an annual call for artists for NO DEAD ARTISTS. The exhibition participants are selected by an ever-changing group of three prestigious arts professionals. The exhibition itself is installed in the gallery for the entire month of September with an opening reception in conjunction with the Arts District New Orleans’ First Saturday Gallery Openings on September 7th, 2019, 6 – 9pm.
The exhibition was created in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. NO DEAD ARTISTS has become an exhibition that has time and again discovered new and emerging talent and is one of the most celebrated art exhibitions in the South.
The exhibition’s name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. NO DEAD ARTISTS turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. In the 90’s, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and subsequently grew to include artists of Louisiana. In 2010, the exhibition expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire United States and the call went international in 2014.
As the Grand Prize, one jury-winning artist is awarded a solo exhibition at Jonathan Ferrara Gallery to take place the following year.
Eligibility and media: Open to living artists of all ages, emerging and established, working throughout the world. All mediums are accepted including, but not limited to, painting, sculpture, design, glass, metalwork, photography, video, performance, mixed media and installation art.
Entry fee.For more detailed information and link to entry: http://www.jonathanferraragallery.com/call-for-artists
