Magnitude SEVEN

Deadline: April 24, 2009 (POSTMARK)


International Competitive Exhibit of Small Works
Cincinnati, OH
May 29 to June 26, 2009

Every year Manifest Gallery calls for little works of art from around the world. Like short poetry, they are a challenge to craft with the same presence of their larger counterparts. Each exhibit brings in hundreds of powerful yet diminutive masterpieces for our jury to mull over. Inevitably we end up with a gallery full of diverse, compelling, and exquisite little gems. Manifest offers this call to artists to submit works no larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion). Standard presentation devices like mats and frames that are not considered part of the work of art are not limited by the 7" criteria.

Eligibility: Magnitude SEVEN 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 no larger than 7 inches in any dimension.

Media: Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media.

Jury and Curator: Manifest's selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by a 5-7 member panel of professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the exhibit curators who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool.

Entry Fee: Each work submitted must be accompanied by a $10 non-refundable entry fee. Number of entries is unlimited.

Sale of Work: All work, unless indicated as not for sale (NFS), will be available for sale during exhibit. Manifest Gallery will retain a commission of 30% on all artwork sold during the exhibition.

Images: Manifest now accepts only digital images for consideration. Digital images can be submitted on CD or by e-mail
