On October 14 and 15, 2009 art enthusiasts from around the world will view the works submitted by artists from all corners of the globe and will vote to choose their favorite 10 artists of CURATE THIS! 2009. This year's CURATE THIS! exhibition is being held in conjunction with PhotoNOLA 2009 ( As such, we are seeking submissions of photography based works including, but not limited to, painting, sculpture, mixed-media, drawing, printmaking, fiber, textiles, installation, photography, design and functional art. Those artists whom the guest curators’ select as their top 10 artists will have their works featured in the exhibition CURATE THIS! 2009 at BECA gallery and in the upcoming 2009 edition of the publication titled, CURATE THIS! 2009.
