Painted: International Exhibition of Contemporary Painting / Calls & Submissions
The Cincinnati based non-profit arts organization and gallery, Manifest, invites visual artists and designers to submit works of painting. Submissions can range from the most traditional to the most conceptual, abstract, or experimental, including those which push the boundaries of the common definition of what constitutes ‘painting’.
At some point many generations ago society reached a level where ordinary people could spend a lifetime perfecting their ability to mix and apply paint, in extraordinary ways. To mark Manifest’s 10th season the gallery kicked off a permanent biennial project surveying painting as an art form. It was first presented in fall 2013 to inaugurate our expanded gallery. PAINTED 2021 will be the fifth biennial presentation of this international survey of contemporary painting.
$40 for up to FOUR entries submitted. $5 per each additional entry.
ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the ‘best of the entire season’.
