New York, NY (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
Art Sprinter announces a call for entries for its 2015 Emerging Jewish Artists Awards. The Awards features an independent panel of judges that includes Barry J. Alperin, president emeritus and life trustee of New York City’s Jewish Museum; widely-exhibited Ukraine-born artist Ilya Zomb; Artem Mirolevich, founder and CEO of Russian Pavilion; and Timothy D’Agostino, CUNY’s fine arts instructor.
The goal of the Emerging Jewish Artists Awards is to showcase the best talent in the global Jewish arts community. From eligible entries, the jury will choose ten finalists to be featured in a group exhibition that concludes the competition. The group exhibition will be held in a New York-based gallery, where finalists will be honored in an awards ceremony. In addition, the winners will be featured in the 2015 Art Sprinter Catalog, including a profile, interview, and selected artworks.
While the Art Sprinter Awards seeks to highlight the work of emerging Jewish artists, there is no required theme for submitted works. The application process asks applicants to provide their name, email address, website URL, and artist statement/bio. There are three submission options for applicants, offering artists the opportunity to choose between submitting one, three, or ten images. While finalists will be chosen based on these images, the final exhibition will feature actual artwork of these artists.
To apply, artists should visit the competition submission page at http://theartsprinter.com/participate/. Once an application has been submitted, artists can get updates on the competition through the Art Sprinter’s blog, as well as through its Facebook and Twitter pages. Highlights of previous Art Sprinter events, artworks of past winners, and 2013 Art Sprinter Catalog are available on the organization’s website http://theartsprinter.com/.
The Art Sprinter Emerging Artists Awards is dedicated to showcasing talented emerging artists in the Jewish community. The project is a part of Council of Jewish Emigre Community Organizations (COJECO) BluePrint Fellowship program that is generously funded by the UJA-Federation of New York and Genesis Philanthropy Group.
