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