International Deadline: October 6, 2019 – The
Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest,
invites visual artists to submit works of art by current or former
The relationship between artists and their current or former
instructors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated,
we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists
and people. Out of respect for this artist-teacher bond, and in honor
of instructors working hard to help artists tap into a higher mind
relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED every year, an annual exhibit
that presents paired works of art by current or former artist/teacher
Submission to this exhibit may be initiated by either party. Artists
will seek out an instructor who has been a key teacher to them or whose
work they particularly respect and ‘tap’ them to participate in this
TAPPED is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must
represent original works of art or design and each entrant must name at
least one current or former instructor or student as an exhibiting
Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media
(including sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc.)
Manifest’s carefully assembled juries change from project to project,
and have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or
style of art.
The 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’… see more.
JURY & CURATOR
This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several member volunteer
panel of professional artists and academic advisors with a broad range
of expertise relative to art and design. The jury will then pass along
their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will design the exhibit
from the jury-approved pool.
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
$40 for up to four entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
Visit Manifest Gallery online to Apply. The online submission process is preferred. However, discs may be submitted (see details on Prospectus).
Artworks are not required to be for sale in order to be included in our
exhibitions. It is required that works are indicated as either “for
sale” or not for sale (NFS) on the submitted entry form. Manifest
Gallery will retain a commission of 30% of the sale price on all artwork
