ROUND #6 IS HISTORY... We first want to thank our three amazing jurors: Lynda Erickson, Asmaa Al-Shabibi, and Thalia Vrachopoulos. They put a definitive stamp to the closing Showcase, and we couldn't hope for a better cast of selections.
Next week we will announce the grand ArtSlant Prize Winners. The wait is not much longer, so hang on to your pants!
WITHOUT MUCH ADO, here are the Juried Selections for the Round #6 Showcase. The $250 recipient from this super group goes to GyeongYoon An!
CONGRATULATIONS! You do us proud!
THE ROUND #6 JURY PANEL continues the excellence we've all come to expect from the Showcase. The three for this session are:
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 given 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:
1. Exhibition: In a top art city or art fair
2. Cash Prizes: Over $20,000 in cash and cash equivalents
3. Exhibition Stipend: Covers shipping & other exhibition costs
4. Purchase Awards: The chance to be part of the ArtSlant Emerging Collection
SELECTION FOR ARTSLANT PRIZE 2012 COMES NEXT WEEK!
