Artist Call – Emerging Artists of the Bay Area Exhibition

Entry Deadline: Tuesday, January 14, 2014

Open to all San Francisco Bay Area resident artists 18 years and over. You are invited to submit 10 digital images of your original works completed in the past three years, not previously shown in a MarinMOCA Juried Exhibition. The goal of this competition is to choose five “emerging” artists who will be given an opportunity to exhibit either a body of work or a site-specific installation within a portion of the Museum gallery. Age is not a factor.

For the purposes of this exhibition the definition of emerging artist is: an artist who is the principal creator of new work, shows significant potential yet is under-recognized, and who has some evidence of professional achievement but not a substantial record of accomplishments. We welcome the opportunity to support works that embody diverse cultural perspectives. “Bay Area resident artists” are defined as artists working and living in one of the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, or Sonoma.

Only online entries with digitally uploaded images will be accepted. If proposing a site-specific installation please include a brief description of concept with supporting images. A visit to the Museum gallery prior to entry would be advisable. Accepted artists will enter a dialogue with our Executive Director on how to proceed preparing for this exhibition. Digital entries must be RECEIVED via online application on or before midnight PDT TUESDAY, January 14, 2014. Notification will be by online list of accepted artwork and via email.
