Attention Emerging Artists!

Previously featured
Item No. 1251522 : Whitney Hubbs, Untitled from Between Erosion and Rupture, 2008 E1DA
This is a great opportunity for new up and coming artists to get your work out there into good art collections and for the art business to take notice of your work. Previous artists featured at Dan Cooney's iGavel Emerging Art Auctions like photographer Timothy Briner had gone into good collections and landed him a solo show at Dan Cooney Fine Art Gallery opening January 2010!

I highly recommend you to submit your work to the now only 4 times a year auctions . It is more affordable than most photography competitions!

You see it here first and trust me... I will be talking here about it.

Dan Cooney is one of the nicest people in the Art Business and Alana Celii has a very sharp eye (co-curator of the Humble Arts Guide)

Read this below carefully and go 4 it!

iGavel launching a call for emerging artists submissions. With Dan Cooney, we are expanding the auction to accept different mediums and will offer the auction four times a year. The new auction format is slated to launch in early 2010, and as I know you have a large following of emerging artists on your blog, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting the open call? Here is a little bit more info about it:

In participation with Daniel Cooney Fine Art and iGavel Associates, iGavel is pleased to present our Emerging Artists Auctions. These auctions include a curated selection of works of art by promising emerging talent. The auction is a showcase before an audience of collectors, dealers, museum professionals and gallery owners. To ensure equal and fair representation all works are presented with reserves set at $200.

Submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis. To submit you must meet the following requirements:

- Undergraduate student works will not be accepted
- All mediums are welcome besides installation works
- Artists cannot have gallery or commercial representation
- Some prior exhibition or publication experience is required

To submit, please fill out the form below. Submit one image per work. Images must be at least 800 pixels on the longest side, jpeg saved for web, below 200kb in size, and SRGB color space. Each artist will be required to sign a contract with iGavel. Artists receive a 50% commission on all sold works. Shipping of accepted works to iGavel or the iGavel Associate is the responsibility of the artist, and the return shipment if not sold. After your submission is received, you will be contacted by email.

You can find the submission form here:
