Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Figureworks Prize 2019 Call for Artists

Hi, through you would be interested in know about the Figureworks Prize and our open Call for Artists. Below is some information and you can find more on our website at https://www.figureworks.org

Cheers,
Mark


Figureworks 2019 Call for Artists

The call for submissions to the 10th annual juried Figureworks Prize and award show is now open. Figureworks is a celebration of the art of the human form, held in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. Each year, we come together to celebrate the human figure through the Figureworks Prize. The call is open to all living artists, in Canada and internationally, working in all media who wish to submit recent works that represent the human form or parts thereof. Entry fees go directly to operational costs and prize money. The total prize value in 2018 was $7,000.

The 2019 show will be juried by Michael Davidge, Andrew Morrow and Joanne Stober.

Our mission at Figureworks is to cultivate the creation and exhibition of art of the human form. We do this by providing an excellent opportunity to exhibit artwork of the human form and receive a significant cash prize. We are a volunteer-based not-for-profit organization. Entry fees and sponsorship go directly to operational costs and prize money. We don’t take any commissions on sales at the Figureworks exhibition — all the money goes directly to the artists.

Artists may submit online through the Figureworks website, www.figureworks.org
Submission deadline is September 30, 2019.

Please note that we do have a reduced submission fee for students.


Why enter?

Figureworks is more than an annual prize; it is a community of artists passionate about representing and interpreting the human figure. Each year we come together to celebrate the figure through the Figureworks Prize. Artists will have their work reviewed by our professional jury and the opportunity to win cash prizes — $7,000 was awarded last year. Those in the show will have their work displayed in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, and published on the Figureworks website. Artists may also sell their works at the show should they choose. Note that Figureworks takes no commission on sales – sales go directly to the artists.


We are proud to acknowledge Wallack’s as the Figureworks 2019 presenting sponsor. Wallack’s has a strong tradition of supporting the arts, supplying professional art supplies through their stores, and representing artists through their gallery.

Figureworks is also sponsored by Wallack Galleries, Rosemary Brushes, Rothwell Gallery, Patrick Gordon Framing, Sivarulrasa Gallery and St. Brigid’s Center for the Arts.

thanks for posting this Mark, I thought it would be of interest in particular for artists living in the USA and Canada.
