STUDIO VISIT Call for entries – ALL MEDIUMS

Published by under Art Competitions

DEADLINE JUNE 30, 2007
Boston, MA – 2D, 3D
The Open Studios Press, creator of New American Paintings, is pleased to announce a new series of juried artist catalogs called Studio Visit. Due to the overwhelming amount of interest in New American Paintings, and the limited amount of space available, we are pleased to offer artists a new and effective venue through which to introduce their work to a serious national audience of art world professionals. Unlike New American Paintings, Studio Visit will be a nationally focused publication that presents all two- and three-dimensional work. Our current expectation is that each volume will include 150 – 200 artists, rather than the 40 who appear in New American Paintings. Each selected artist will be provided with one full page that will include a full color image, contact information and a brief artist statement. As with New American Paintings, each volume will be juried by a professional curator and produced to the highest quality standards that can be used as a valuable promotional tool. Once published, Studio Visit will be mailed to 1,500 of the nation’s top galleries and curators and a growing subscriber base of over 500 collectors and art enthusiasts. Additionally, participating artists will receive 5 complimentary issues of the publication, and they will be able to purchase additional copies at a discount. The competition is free to enter, however, artists will be responsible for a $185 production and distribution fee.
