Emerging Artists Exhibition
Juniors, Seniors and Recent Undergrads

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center
Cincinnati, OH
May 29, 2015 to June 26, 2015

Every year Manifest surveys work by students and recent graduates of art and design programs, seeking to assemble, promote, and document examples of the excellence being achieved by 'new' or emerging artists for Rites of Passage. This exhibit, season publication, and award are intended to support that emergence.

For an eleventh straight year we offer this challenge to students and the recently graduated in regional, national, international college undergraduate programs to show us what you've achieved, bring it off campus, and share it with our international viewing public.

We believe there exists tremendous unexposed quality among people pursuing degrees in the visual arts. Revealing new artists is part of our non-profit mission!

This exhibit will feature the best work from artists about to receive or recently awarded an undergraduate degree from a regional, national, or international college art or design program. All entrants must have received or be scheduled to receive a college undergraduate degree in 2014, 2015, or 2016, and provide an academic reference’s contact info.

Entrants must have graduated or plan to graduate in 2014, 2015, or 2016 from an undergraduate program of art or design.

Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional visual arts media, genre, subject matter, and content.

Manifest's carefully assembled juries change from project to project, and as a body have no collective predisposition towards any particular kind or style of art.

$36 for up to three entries submitted. $10 per each additional entry. Fees are non-refundable. Number of entries is unlimited.

Manifest's selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by an anonymous 5-9 member panel of professional and academic advisers with a broad range of expertise relative to art and design. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool.
