Call for Artists / Figureworks - Juried National Art Prize
« Last post by Tom Greene on September 09, 2018, 10:27:34 AM »
Figureworks is calling artists to submit for the 9th annual juried Figureworks Prize and award show. The submission deadline is September 30, 2018. Figureworks is an annual juried art prize and celebration of the art of the human form held in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. We believe in being inclusive and accept figurative works in all media from Canada and internationally.  The show is open to all living artists working in all mediums who wish to submit recent works that represent the human form or parts thereof.

Our 2018 all-women jury is deeply connected to their local community while also making an impact on a national level. The jury is composed of Danuta Sierhuis, M.A., artist and Curatorial Assistant, Canadian Art at the National Gallery of Canada; Jennifer Macklem, multidisciplinary artist and Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa; and Joanne Rycaj Guillemette, photographer and responsible for the Indigenous Portfolio in Private Archives acquisitions at Library & Archives Canada.

Our mission at Figureworks is to cultivate and exhibit 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
Submission deadline is September 30, 2018.

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

We are proud to acknowledge Wallack’s as the Figureworks 2018 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.

What is in it for the artists
Figureworks is more than an annual prize; it is a community of artists passionate about 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 — $5000 was awarded last year. Those in the show will have their work displayed in Ottawa, Canada’s capital and be 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.

Qu'y a-t-il dedans pour les artistes
Figureworks est plus qu'un prix annuel; c'est une communauté d'artistes passionnés par la forme humaine. Chaque année, nous nous réunissons pour célébrer la forme humaine par le biais du prix Figureworks. Notre jury de professionnelles examinera le travail des artistes et ces derniers auront la possibilité de gagner des prix en argent - 5000 $ ont été décernés l'an dernier. Les œuvres présentées seront exposées à Ottawa, la capitale du Canada, et seront publiées sur le site Web de Figureworks. Les artistes peuvent également vendre leurs œuvres au cours de la présentation s'ils le souhaitent. Notez que Figureworks ne prend aucune commission sur les ventes.
