Infinity Art Gallery

Deadline: September 15, 2009

Infinity Art Gallery
Online Exhibition
October 15, 2009
It is our intention to choose the very best art in terms of composition, technique, concept and overall excellence regardless of style or medium. Submissions are encouraged to include a wide range of style, medium and content and selected work will likely include a broad range of art.

Finalists will be selected for artistic excellence which includes concept and mastery of technique. Artwork will be selected solely on its own merit without regard to the artists' names.

All exhibits take place online at http://www.infinityartgallery.com/ and showcase artwork by international contemporary artists. All jury selected artwork will be exhibited for six months at Infinity Art Gallery.

All eligible entries submitted by artists may be displayed online during the Call-to-Artists. Artists may choose not to participate in the pre-exhibit show.

All juried exhibits are open for artists everywhere to submit. Artists must be 18 years of age or older. Publishers, galleries, agents, and collectors may not submit artwork on behalf of artists. Media (video/film/audio) not accepted. All works submitted must be created within 36 months prior to the deadline. The original design and concept must have been created by the submitting artist, have been created without the use of a kit, and may not have been created under supervision or instruction. Artists may submit work that was submitted for previous exhibits, but may not submit artwork previously selected by the jury as a finalist in any exhibit at Infinity Art Gallery.

Qualified Artwork:

An unlimited variety of subjects and styles are eligible including traditional, contemporary, abstract and conceptual art. Submissions may include sculpture, painting (oil, acrylic, water media, pastel and egg tempera), drawing, printmaking, glass, mixed media, photography, computer generated art and fabric art.

Craftwork will not be accepted. The exploration of traditional craft materials used in an artistic realm is acceptable, but will not be accepted if the work is deemed to be a 'craft' piece. One way artists may determine if their work is craft is to inquire whether the piece is poetic in 'concept' and 'emotional response'.

Grand Opening:
October 15, 2009
Up to 60 juried artists will be exhibited. Award winners will be announced and the artwork, artist statements, and contact information of selected finalists will be exhibited. At this time the artwork of non-finalists is no longer exhibited in the gallery.

Finalists will be select by a jury committee of art professionals (including Infinity Art Gallery's Art Director). First, second and third place winners will be selected by the jury committee. The Founders' Choice, Art Director's Choice, and Gallery Director's Choice awards will be selected by the founders and directors of the gallery.

Creative works of art will be selected for artistic excellence, which includes concept and mastery of technique. Award winners will be announced at the Grand Opening.
