Open Call For Artists
 
The International Art Festival is still accepting submissions for our Fall Show.

  We still have 5 spots but the time is running out.
 
The 2015 International Art Festival will take place at the
 
        Highline Loft Gallery on November 5-8
             508 W 26 Street 5G, New York, NY 10001
 
The gallery is located in the trendy West Chelsea Arts Building, NYC.
West Chelsea is an up and coming area best known for the institution of Thursday night art exhibitions, where there world's greatest contemporary artists present their works to the taste-making New York art public. 

We invite you to submit your work free of charge for consideration and selection to be part of this exhibition and to appear in the International Art Festival catalog.
 

1. CURATED ART SHOW
 
Each artist will be allotted a wall space of approximately 10 feet by 10 feet, enough room to hang five or six  works. If your works are accepted, you will receive an invitation letter.  Our sale exhibitions are well-attended and covered by local and international media outlets.
 
The exhibition fee is $790. If your work is accepted for exhibition, we require a $150 non-refundable deposit to reserve your spot. 
 
Depending on demand and public response, we will arrange additional New York exhibitions shortly thereafter. Our main purpose is to provide select artists with an opportunity to present a body of work to the New York and international art-buying public. 
 
2. CATALOG
 
Our graphic design and editing team will work with artists to create a full-color catalog, printed on high-quality semi-gloss paper, to accompany and complement the exhibition series. This catalog is intended for use not only as a permanent commemoration of the exhibitions, but also as a marketing tool for featured artists, who will use it to attract patrons and press attention. 
We will promote and distribute the catalog at major art fairs, galleries and other important venues. We will also send the 2015 International Art Festival catalog to important collectors of contemporary art and major journalists who cover art news and trends.
 
 Artists are eligible to appear in the catalog whether or not they are selected for the inaugural exhibition, provided their work meets the standards of our jury. Artists participating in our exhibits will be eligible for one full pagein the catalog, with additional pages available for $75 per page. Artists who complete payment by September 30, 2015 will have two free catalog pages.
 
If you decide to participate in the catalog only, the fee is $100 for the first page, with additional pages available at a fee of $75 per page.
 
During the past three years, International Art Festival, Inc. has sponsored annual competitions and sales exhibitions of work by leading figures among emerging and established contemporary artists. These took place at venues in prime New York City and New York area locations, and generated a warm response and great excitement among trend-setting members of the New York community who support and patronize contemporary artists. We invite you to view video footage of one of our recent exhibitions, which is available at www.newartfestival.com.
 
We want to work with you on facilitating your access to the New York art market, which is currently in the midst of an incredible revival, and on enhancing your profile with the public and among your peers.
Thank you for your support.
