The BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Artisan Series is a national search to find the next big name in visual arts, offering underrepresented artists a national platform to showcase their work. Judges from across North America have selected a group of Regional Finalists to be featured in Regional Gallery events. Regional Finalists compete in a juried exhibit at one of fourteen Regional Gallery events. Ultimately, one Regional Winner from each event will advance and showcase their art at SCOPE Miami Beach. The Grand Prize winner will receive a cash stipend and collaborate with Artsy to create a public installation in New York City. The Second Place Winner and People’s Choice Winner will each receive a cash stipend to create a solo exhibit at a gallery in their region. The Painted Bride Art Center is hosting a three week exhibit of the Philadelphia Series Regional finalists, showcasing artwork from some of the best emerging artists in Philadelphia.
