CALL FOR ART

Hamptons Art Hub is now accepting online art submissions for its Spring 2019 Art Competition in response to the theme "Unexpected Moments: Art with a Twist.” Submissions will be accepted online through Sunday, June 23, 2019, at Midnight. 

The Art Competition seeks art that surprises, challenges, delights or channels an unexpected moment for an online exhibition at HamptonsArtHub.com. The aspect of unexpectedness can spring from the choice of material, a discovery made in the art making process, the source of inspiration, the composition's theme or a quality within a conceptual point of view.

Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme liberally. All genres and mediums are welcome. Artists can live anywhere in the world and the Art Competition is not restricted to artists living or working in The Hamptons or the East End of Long Island.

Art will be viewed online only. Artists are encouraged (but not required) to provide a Statement about the art submitted or an Artist Statement or can supply both. Caption information about the submitted artworks are required.

ABOUT HAMPTONS ART HUB ART COMPETITIONS

Hamptons Art Hub holds Art Competitions two times a year in spring and fall. Each contest seeks fine art in response to a theme. Open to original art works in all mediums, artists can be based anywhere in the world and do not have to live in The Hamptons.

Each Art Competition is judged by an art professional, typically a museum curator or a gallery director of a New York City or Hamptons gallery which exhibits contemporary art. Each competition has a different theme, designed to encourage critical thinking and artwork that explores the theme in a variety of ways.

Artist winners have gone on to exhibit at galleries new to the artist; had their art curated into gallery shows at New York City and The Hamptons; have their art purchased by new collectors; or have received critical media attention for their art.
