Call for Entries: Eleventh Annual National Juried Exhibition
The Arts & Culture Alliance of Greater Knoxville announces a call for entries for its eleventh annual National Juried Exhibition. The National Juried Exhibition was developed to provide a forum for artists to compete on a national scale and display their work. Approximately 40-50 fine art works encompassing all styles and genres from both emerging and established artists will comprise the exhibition in the Balcony gallery of the beautifully-restored Emporium Center at 100 S. Gay Street from February 3-24, 2017. The Emporium is free and open to the public Monday–Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and other hours for special events.
The deadline for entries to be received is Sunday, December 18, 2016.
Prizes include at least $1,000 in cash awards, and exhibiting artists will receive a catalog of the exhibition.
Artists may view the information, complete the entry form, and/or download an application at www.knoxalliance.com/nje-entry/.
The call for entries is open to all artists. Entries must be original works completed within the last two years in the following categories: 2-D (painting, drawing, mixed media, printmaking, photography) and 3-D (sculpture of all media). Work may not have previously exhibited in any Alliance exhibition. The nonrefundable entry fee is $40 for up to three works ($25 for Arts & Culture Alliance members and students). Up to three additional entries may be submitted for $7/each ($5 for members/students).
