James Renwick Alliance Chrysalis Award for Emerging Artists

James Renwick Alliance Chrysalis Award for Emerging Artists

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, August 28, 2019

2019 Focus: Mixed Media

The Chrysalis Award was created by the James Renwick Alliance to encourage and assist emerging American visual artists. Emerging is defined as someone early in their artistic career, without regard to age, who demonstrates excellence in their work and a commitment to developing in unique and dynamic ways, but without major gallery representation or significant exhibition history.

The 2019 award will focus on emerging artists working in the MIXED MEDIA craft field. In future years, they will solicit nominees in other media. The awardee will be selected by an independent panel of jurors.

The awardee will receive all of the following: a $5,000 unrestricted award, an opportunity to meet with other artists, collectors, and JRA members in the Washington, DC area, and to give a formal presentation about their work at an important JRA event in November 2019.
