A few calls we wanted to share-
1. National Small Works 2011–you know the drill by now: works must be smaller than 170 sq in and original, hand-pulled prints (no digital or photographic work) created in the past two years by artists nationwide age 18+. The full prospectus is on our website, and there are only 8 days left to take advantage of the early bird reduced fee! (The final deadline is May 15).
2. Art Addiction’s 7th Annual Medial of Miniature Art – this is an online exhibition, but the prizes are worth it- First Prize includes a 2-page spread in World of Art Magazine and two more artists receive a 1-page spread. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a full prospectus.
3. ARTspace original print exchange-Deadline August 1. If you’ve never done a print exchange before, they’re pretty fun! ARTspace is asking for 10 original prints in a series. They will keep one for their collection and the rest are redistributed into portfolios of 9 prints each and sent to the participating artists. There is a $25 submission fee–but you’re guaranteed a return in the form of artwork (they will also have the prints for sale). Please see the prospectus for full details.
4. Trawick Prize–Deadline is TOMORROW but if you can get an application together it’s worth it–put on by Bethesda, MD’s Arts and Entertainment District, up to 15 finalists are exhibited in the September exhibition. From there, $14,00 in prize money is at stake–Best in Show: $10,000, 2nd Place-$2,000, 3rd Place-$1,000, and a young artists award of $1,000. See the full prospectus for more details and get that application going!
