Call to Maine Visual Artists

Maine Art Scene magazine is excited to announce its fourth annual multi-disciplinary virtual showcase of contemporary Maine painters, fine art print makers, fine art photographers, sculptors, potters, furniture makers, mixed-media and multimedia artists.

Our 2010, 2011 and 2012 virtual exhibits have been seen by thousands of online visitors and continue to receive enthusiastic feedback. The virtual showcase has been used by fine art gallery owners to find Maine artists for shows, publishers for feature articles, as well as art collectors.


2011-2012 Exhibit: 6,750+ visits (in two years)
2012-2013 Exhibit:
4,050+ visits (in one year)

 

This statewide interactive showcase will be available online at maineartscene.com and maine-art-exhibits.com in March, 2013. As with the previous showcases, the selected works will become part of Maine Art Scene’s permanent virtual art library.

 

This year’s artwork will be selected by five co-jurors:

  • Daphne Anderson Deeds, Fine Art Curator & Museum Consultant (CV | web)
  • Benjamin Potter, Maine Artist, Professor of Art & Curator of the Leonard R. Craig Gallery at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts (CV | web)
  • Sam Mitchell, a passionate collector of Maine art (featured in Maine Home + Design article by curator Suzette McAvoy)
  • Brenda and Thierry Bonneville, founders of Maine Art Scene magazine.

 

Chosen works will be displayed in a virtual format that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate, and artwork and labels to zoom in on. Exciting new virtual spaces will be created for our 2012-2013 showcase.

 

NEW! 5 Featured 2014 Maine Artists
will complement the 2013/2013 exhibit

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of mainerartscene.com, this year a special selection and virtual exhibit of five featured Maine artists will compliment the 2013/2014 showcase. The artists will be selected by this year’s jury independently from the statewide showcase, and will receive an MAS award as well as free promotions for the upcoming year on Maine Art Scene. The five artists will be given their own separate virtual exhibit room(s), showcasing a larger/more representative selected body of their respective work.

Please note that the jurors reserve the right to select the 5 additional Maine artists, independently from the received submissions.


WHAT VISITORS SAY:

Gained Visibility

"I just wanted to show and share appreciation to Maine Art Scene, especially for its online virtual gallery. An image from one of my paintings is on the cover of an art magazine thanks to the selection being made by the editor after looking through the virtual online art gallery. Thanks to Maine Art Scene for all of its creative work."
