Drawn: 6th Annual International Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing
By Manifest Creative Research Gallery

International Deadline: February 8, 2019 – Manifest Creative Research Gallery’s ‘6th Annual International Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing’ invites artists to submit original works of of drawing in any media relevant to the practice (including non-traditional approaches), any style, and any genre (fine art, illustration, design, conceptual, realism, etc.). This exhibit has no expectation for type or style of work to be considered or selected.

DRAWN is open to everyone. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter. The only criteria is that works must qualify as drawing, including that which tests the boundaries of the discipline. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual or experimental.

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’. 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.

Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous several member panel of professional 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.

$40 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.
