The Morean invites emerging artists currently residing in Florida to submit entries for possible exhibition in the third annual Fresh Squeezed 3: Emerging Artists in Florida. The exhibition will be held at the Morean Arts Center May 11 – June 28, 2019, with an opening reception on May 10, 2018, from 5:00 – 9:00pm. The purpose of Fresh Squeezed 3 is to nurture and advance the careers of emerging visual artists while also giving our community the opportunity to discover exciting new art being made in our region.
The Morean Galleries will be divided into six spaces for the purposes of this show, giving each selected artist what will essentially be a solo exhibition. Works in any medium will be accepted, and community-oriented, site-specific installations are encouraged. Each artist will have the opportunity to participate a gallery talk during the run of the exhibition, to enable them to interact with potential collectors and raise their visibility in our community. Morean staff will work closely with the selected artists to assist them in photographing, pricing and marketing their work. Our Fresh Squeezed program aims to provide emerging artists with resources needed to develop a sustainable artistic practice.
The exhibition and competition is open to all emerging artists (age 18 or older) who are residents of Florida, without restriction to medium. The Morean is defining an emerging artist as one who has never had a solo show in the state of Florida. A solo show constitutes an exhibition in a gallery, arts center, or museum of at least three weeks in length and with an opening reception. One exception: solo BFA or MFA shows at a college or university are acceptable. All work must be original, completed within the last two years, and not previously exhibited at the Morean. The Morean’s curatorial staff has the final authority for selection.
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: October 25, 2018 (midnight)
