CALL for ENTRIES: Juried NYC Art Competition
The holy grail for most of the emerging artists I know is a solo show in New York City. The myth of the NYC show as the tipping point for wealth, success and fame is as idealized as NYC diners, bagels and street hot dog vendors.
Don’t misunderstand, I LOVE diners, bagels and hot dogs. I recognize that none of them will change my life, but I will enjoy one and all if you offer me one.
Check out this next Call for Entries for the 2011 National Juried Competition from the First Street Gallery in New York City. The entry fee is a standard $35, but the grand prize …a solo show. Don’t miss this opportunity!
