Unless specified otherwise by the exhibit or project parameters Manifest has no requirements on timeframe when submitted works must have been made.

MASTER PIECES: 13th Annual International MFA/MA Exhibition

Deadline: May 3, 2019

Entry Fee: $25
Open to: Current graduate students and MFA/MA degree recipients since January 2018
Exhibition Dates: July 12 - August 9, 2019
Exhibition Location: Manifest Gallery
Contact: Erin Corley, info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information: Every year Manifest offers an opportunity just for graduate students to exhibit at our gallery in Cincinnati. This 13th installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. Often the most exceptional work comes out of these artists’ immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest’s goal, therefore, is to select works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career and justify the degree of Master. The full-color hardcover Manifest Exhibition Annual publication, a 'yearbook' for the season, will serve as a visual documentation of these artists’ own benchmarks for years to come. 

Up to THREE of Manifest's exhibit spaces will be devoted to the Master Pieces 13 exhibition.

CALL FOR ENTRIES: Solo, Group & Concept Submissions (Season 16: 2019/2020)

Deadline: June 1, 2019

Entry Fee: $50
Location: Manifest Gallery | Cincinnati, OH
Contact: Erin Corley, info@manifestgallery.org
Additional Information: SUBMISSION PROCESS FOR SEASON 16 IS NOW OPEN!
Manifest is happy to receive proposals of various types and accepts these on an ongoing basis starting usually in late winter, reviewing them starting in early June in consideration for the upcoming exhibit season. No notifications are made until the final season schedule is decided (usually by the end of July), but updates are sent to all artists at the start of our committee's review process. Anyone can submit a proposal, and selections are open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media.
On average, one-third of Manifest's exhibits are dedicated to solo exhibits. Solo exhibitors have included local, regional, and national artists from as far away as New York City, San Francisco, Canada, and Hong Kong. Our exhibits are routinely reviewed in local and sometimes national news and art publications (including Sculpture Magazine, Drawing Magazine, and Art Papers among others). And while our focus is on providing a museum-like experience of visual art, patrons and collectors, including museums, watch Manifest and our publications for future acquisitions and exhibitors. We believe this makes the spots in our schedule reserved for solo or proposed exhibits highly valuable.
ANNUAL CASH AWARD: The annual Manifest Grand Jury Prize will result in the awarding of one significant cash prize ($2500) to a single work selected as the 'best of the entire season'.

Additional Information: HOUSEGUEST is an independent artist-run project space located in the south end of Louisville, Kentucky. The space launched in January of 2018. Founded by multi-disciplinary artist and writer Megan Bickel and her husband, chef Jacob Wilson, the gallery's location is in the living room of the couple's house. The space will hold six exhibitions a year: four solo shows and two group exhibitions.  Alongside each exhibition will be a small supper pop-up collaborative event, which will be by invitation only. We encourage artists to interact and activate the space while exploring new ideas and concepts, with full control over what they create.

Art Mentors Needed

Contact: Patrick Erdley, Patrick.erdley@bbbsky.org.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is looking for 8-10 volunteers to serve as mentors to students from The Academy at Shawnee who are interested in pursuing a future in the Arts.  This is a great way to make a significant impact on a young person in our community and foster their passion for art.  
School to Work (STW) is a Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana workplace mentoring program. It combines the benefits of 1-to-1 mentoring with the opportunity to provide students with exposure to workplace skills, career opportunities in the arts, and soft skills development. School to Work removes one of the biggest barriers to volunteering as mentor (available time) by bringing students into a workplace once a month for on-site mentoring that includes a custom curriculum provided by BBBS. For this particular program, on-site visits will take place at various arts organizations near downtown.
