Call to Artists: NWAA Emerging Artist Program
Emerging artists are the future of tomorrow's art, but it's not always an easy path. We designed our Emerging Artist Program (EAP) to help ease the journey from emerging artist to successful, experienced artist-business person.
Emerging artists apply for our Best of the Northwest shows and are juried, using criteria similar to our gallery artists. One artist is selected for each show and is paired with a Northwest Art Alliance legacy artist who acts as a mentor. The EAP artist is awarded a booth space free of charge (including pole, drape and electricity) and features prominently in show promotional materials.
The Best of the Northwest is a 3-day event showcasing the art of some of the best artists in the Pacific Northwest. The Fall show is held in two "acts" and a winner will be selected for each act. Each event showcases over 80 artists from over 15 different mediums. The Emerging Artist will get the chance to participate in the same venue as the other established artists, giving them the opportunity and experience to begin their own journey.
Winners are paired with a NW Art Alliance legacy artist mentor. The mentor will be an experienced artist who can share their experience and expertise and help the emerging artist prepare for the event by being available to answer questions and "show them the ropes" of participating in a premier art and fine craft show in Seattle. The mentor will donate their time for up to 2 months preceding the show to their protege to help them prepare for their BNW debut. Not only that, but the chosen emerging artist(s) will also receive...
