Congratulations once again to all the Juried Select Winners in Round # 2! A reminder that Juried Winners from all rounds will be eligible for the big trophy at the end of the tunnel – an exhibition with all the bells and whistles at Aqua Art Miami! This is also a reminder that there are 6 rounds in total, and that means you have 6 chances of making it to the Juried Select circle and final competition.

Round #2 Juried Select Winner Virginia T Coleman currently is in a group show at Istvan Gallery. Adding to her repertoire and skillset, the mixed media artist recently moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend welding school. Coleman's varied background includes design, architecture, painting and now welding. Her work combines the use of architectural linearity and  deceptive foreshortening to create an expressive form of constructivism.

The Chicago artist recently completed artist residencies at threewalls in Chicago and the Bundanon Trust in New South Wales, Australia. Next up for Bruce is another group exhibition of small works on paper at The Nevica Project, opening in June.

There are 3 ways to win for each participating artist:

SHOWCASE WINNER - In each of our 6 rounds, the ArtSlant Curation Team selects about 1/4 of the best artists entered in that round to be awarded Showcase Winner status. Being a Showcase Winner means you can move into the jury selection process for Juried Select Winner status. Showcase winners are given maximum exposure on ArtSlant through our Homepage display, our Artshow display and in our e-Publications.

JURIED SELECT WINNER - Our Review Panel of international galleries, curators and artists will go through the Profiles of each Showcase Winning artist. From this review, they will select the top 10 Juried Select artists in each round. These 10 artists will automatically go into our year-end voting for the ArtSlant Prize exhibition and cash awards.

NEW - One Juried Select artist in each round will be granted a $250 cash award.

ARTSLANT PRIZE - Three artists will be selected as our final ArtSlant Prize winners from the pool of 60 Juried Select artists that have been assembled during the year. Our ArtSlant Prize winning artists will receive:
