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.
