In early spring of 2012, Chelsea River Gallery launched its second major competition in its 9-year history.
In keeping with the gallery’s mission to identify and promote emerging talent as well as exhibit mid-career and established visual artists, River Gallery sent out a regional call for entries to artists under 40 years of age, according to a press release.
Ten artists were selected as finalists and their work will be exhibited in a show titled 10 Under 40,” which runs from Nov. 10-Dec. 22.
The artist’s work will include paintings, prints, drawings, ceramic sculpture, video installation and performance art.
River Gallery has invited 10 collectors, academics and art enthusiasts to form an advisory committee that will judge the work of the 10 finalists and award cash prizes of $1,000, $750 and $500.
These prizes will be awarded during the opening reception on Nov. 10 from 6-8 p.m.
The artwork will be for sale and the River Gallery has committed to representing and promoting the finalists.
