NextGen 7.0

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, May 20, 2020

Application Deadline: May 20, 2020 11:59 PM
NextGen 7.0 is calling all DMV aspiring artists.
VisArts welcomes artists ages 17 – 27 in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area to submit their application for NextGen 7.0. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this iteration of Next Gen will be held in an online gallery from June 10 – August 9, 2020. This will present a unique opportunity for aspiring artists with little to no experience to exhibit their work in a professional online gallery.
*Keep in mind, with this being an online exhibition your work will be fully represented through images or video. The digital material you submit is what will be used for the show if you are accepted, so make sure your image/video quality is top notch!

VisArts is a non-profit organization whose mission is to transform individuals and communities through the visual arts. VisArts provides children, teens and adults with opportunities to express their creativity and enhance their awareness of the arts.
Online applications are due by May 20, 2020, 11:59 pm at visartscenter.org/call-for-entries. Please keep in mind that submission does not guarantee acceptance. Applicants should have little or no experience exhibiting in a professional gallery. Previous NextGen participants are ineligible. Previous NextGen applicants who were not selected may re-apply for this year’s exhibition.
After reviewing all works, selected artists will be notified by May 28.
All submissions will be juried by professional artists and curators (names to be announced).
Keep in mind that in order to be accepted into the exhibition, you are expected to submit high quality images (at least 300 DPI) of your accepted artwork to the gallery by May 20, by 11:59 PM. Artwork will not be accepted after this available date.
