Monochrome: Open Call for Works Using One Color
By Manifest Creative Research Gallery


 
International Deadline: June 14, 2017 – Sometimes you can say more by saying less. Many artists find that the intentional reduction of visual information actually increases a work of art’s impact. One such reduction is the use of color, creating engaging art through the use of a single hue.

Manifest Creative Research Gallery is proud to announce the final exhibition call of our 13th season with the exhibit Monochrome.

ELIGIBILITY
Monochrome is open to everyone. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art or design and address the theme of ‘monochrome’ in some way. The ‘chroma’ that is ‘mono’ is, of course, up to each artist. The color need not be the primary content of the work of art. The limited pallet must simply be a factor in the realization of the work, whatever form it may take. Manifest is open to artists’ interpretation of the exact definition of ‘monochrome’.

CASH AWARD POTENTIAL
A new annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant 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. This process will apply retroactively to exhibits since the start of our 13th season on September 30, 2016, and applies to each exhibit through August 18, 2017, including this one.

MEDIA
Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts 2d and 3d media applicable to the theme.

Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.

JURY & CURATOR
Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This project will be juried by a 5-9 member panel of professional and academic volunteer advisors with a broad range of expertise.

PUBLICATION
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.

ENTRY FEE
$36 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry.

ENTRY
Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission process is preferred. However, discs may be submitted (see details on Prospectus).

SALE OF ARTWORK
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.
