The Voice of Art is pleased to announce an entry call for "New Juried Artist Members of Spring 2021."

 

The Voice of Art Virtual Gallery is committed to representing, showcasing, and fostering your artwork in the most practical ways, as we embrace a new art culture and new challenges in the art industry.  TVOA will enhance viewers’ immediate experiences with your actual artwork in two complementary spaces: virtual and physical.  We aim for the highest level of visibility and accessibility, where your original artwork can reach a new potential art clientele in various venues:

  • TVOA will host a group virtual & venue show, “New Juried Artist Members Spring 2021” in Feb.-April 2021.

  • TVOA will present each Juried Member on the "Juried Artists" page on the TVOA website. 

  • All Juried Members will be invited to two TVOA Members’ Virtual Group Shows, in winter & summer, as complimentary submissions.

  • From the second-year term, any Juried Member will become eligible to apply for our Virtual Solo Shows for a six-week duration.

  • TVOA E-Newsletters will feature each Juried Member as a highlighted virtual presentation.

  • TVOA will create various, dynamic show opportunities in venues across CT and all Juried Members will be invited to enter to any of these group virtual and/or venue shows.

We look forward to reviewing your application!
