Artist Submissions

Emerging artists are invited to submit their work for consideration for The Real Art Awards at Real Art Ways. Jurors will consider the quality of the artist’s work, the innovation evidenced by submitted work, the potential impact of the exhibition on the artist’s career and the economic and physical feasibility of the exhibition. Artists should submit work made within the last 3 years. Artists working in all media are welcome.

In addition to a $2,500 prize, six artists will receive a solo exhibit at Real Art Ways in 2019 or 2020, an exhibition publication with essay, curatorial assistance, and the opportunity for an artist talk.

DEADLINE: March 29, 11:59 EDT, 2019

Terry Jenoure, Artist / Curator, Director, Augusta Savage Gallery
Olu Oguibe, Artist / Critic
Will K. Wilkins, Executive Director of Real Art Ways

Emerging artists living and working in New England, New York or New Jersey who are no more than three years removed from a full-time educational program, or artists with less than five years of exhibition experience are eligible to apply to this call. Artists who do not fit either of these criteria but feel they can make a compelling case to be considered as emerging may also apply; the jury will determine their competitiveness based on review criteria. Artists should not be enrolled in any academic program during the time of exhibition.
