Washington Green, fine art publisher to Castle Fine Art and Castle Galleries, has launched its annual search for new talent, giving unsigned artists the chance to appear in its famed Summer Exhibition.
Now in its third year, IN:SIGHT is an opportunity for innovative visual artists to display their work to an established audience of art buyers at Washington Green’s annual summer showcase. The search has now begun to find the rising stars of the art world, with visual artists working across all mediums encouraged to enter.
Successful IN:SIGHT 2017 applicants will be featured in the Washington Green Fine Art’s Summer Exhibition, which is taking place at Castle Fine Art in Birmingham’s International Convention Centre from 29 July-19 August. Exhibiting artists will not only have a platform to showcase their work but could be in with a chance of securing a publishing contract with Washington Green.
In the past two years, 31 artists have been selected to exhibit; with 4 then proceeding to be signed by Washington Green as a result.
Glyn Washington, Founder and Creative Director of Washington Green Fine Art, commented:
“IN:SIGHT is a truly fantastic opportunity for artists to exhibit their work, not just to the public but to Washington Green’s community of art buyers. As a business we are dedicated to bringing the latest talent to the contemporary art market, and the past two years have shown just how vast and eclectic the talent out there is.
“In this increasingly competitive industry, IN:SIGHT offers that much-needed platform for artists and, as a result, previous applicants like Nigel Mason and Robert Oxley can say that their work is published by us alongside the likes of Bob Dylan and Ronnie Wood. We’ve seen a significant rise in applications so far this year and I’m excited to see what the next generation of visual artists has in store.”
Any unsigned artists keen to apply for IN:SIGHT 2017 can send an artist biography and statement, along with six artwork images and prices, and a link to their website to email@example.com by 31 March 2017.
