Deadline for Entry: April 13, 2011

Every year Manifest calls for little works of art from around the world.
Each exhibit brings in hundreds of powerful yet diminutive masterpieces for our jury to consider. Inevitably we end up with a gallery full of diverse, compelling, and exquisite little gems. Manifest’s patrons eagerly await the Magnitude SEVEN event each year. So we are always excited to offer this call to artists to submit works no larger than seven inches in any dimension (any proportion).Standard presentation devices like mats and frames that are not considered part of the work of art are not limited by the 7″ criteria.

Eligibility: Magnitude 7 is open to everyone. Professionals as well as students are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art.

Media: Open to any and all traditional and non-traditional genre and media, including mixed media. The only limiting factor is that works must be 7″ or smaller in size. There is no other thematic guideline.

Jury and Curator: Manifest’s selection process involves a complex two-part system. This exhibit will be juried by a 5-9 member panel of professional and academic advisors with a broad range of expertise. The jury will then pass along their recommendations to the exhibit curator who will make the final selections from the jury-approved pool.

Catalog: Manifest will produce a full-color catalog documenting the work selected for exhibit. Each exhibiting artist will receive one free copy of the catalog. Artists will receive their copy either in person when picking up work after the exhbit, or with the return shipment of their artwork. Additional copies can be purchased via the online bookstore. For examples of past catalogs visitManifest Press.

Delivery and Return of Work: All work accepted for the exhibition must arrive ready to install. Works not gallery-ready, or not exhibiting good craftsmanship, may be omitted from the exhibit. Accepted work that differs significantly from the entry images or suffers from poor presentation, will be disqualified. Please note that professional-level presentation is a must. Work may be hand delivered or shipped. Shipped works must be sent in an easily reusable container/packaging with return shipping prepaid. Works will be returned in the same manner as delivered or via UPS/USPS. All work must arrive at Manifest by the specified date (see calendar below). Accepted work will remain on display for the duration of the exhibition. Works not claimed within 30 days of the end of the exhibit will become the property of Manifest. The artists are responsible for all shipping costs.
