Winston-Salem, NC (July 8, 2014) — Art Nouveau Winston-Salem, an affiliate organization of The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County for ages 21-40, has scheduled its third annual North Carolina emerging artists exhibition for October 17-November 29 and is issuing a call for art work.

Emerging artists from across the state working in all media are encouraged to submit one to five original works or one comprehensive project for consideration. Artists must be at least 18 and are required to submit a description of the work (materials, dimensions, date), an artist statement, and a biography. All submission materials must be digital and submitted to [email protected] by August 15, 2014.

This year’s exhibit will have a select panel of jurors from museums, galleries, and universities. Kelly Bennett, co-chair of Art Nouveau Winston Salem, said, “Besides encouraging emerging artists from our city and throughout North Carolina, the exhibition gives them an opportunity to expose their work to a larger, more diverse audience than they ordinarily may enjoy, to raise their visibility and to develop contacts that will enhance their careers.”

The exhibition, at the Womble Carlyle Gallery at the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 251 N. Spruce Street, in downtown Winston-Salem is free and will open with a public reception, 6:00- 8:00 p.m., Friday, October 17.
