DESCRIPTION

The National Wet Paint Exhibition is an outlook and an overview of emerging artists across the United States currently working in the medium of painting. Wet Paint refers to the idea that this is a fresh group of artists. They are MFA (Masters of Fine Arts) candidates and recent MFA recipients working primarily in the medium of painting.

The National Wet Paint Exhibition consists of 45 paintings by artists selected from a national call which resulted in 280 submissions. The exhibition takes place in the 6000 sq/ft main gallery of the Zhou B Art Center in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood. The Zhou B Art Center is a private, non-government funded art center designed to facilitate the exchange of contemporary art between Chicago and the international art community. The 87,000 square feet art center offers innumerable possibilities for exploring the arts in a charismatic location and collectively form an extravagant art center fusing culture and creativity.

All the works in the exhibition will be permanently available online at www.VisualArtToday.com. The National Wet Paint Exhibition was curated and organized by Sergio Gomez, independent curator at the Zhou B Art Center.
