This past year has challenged us in ways we didn't know were possible, and the art sector has been put under extreme pressure. Despite this, artists have risen to meet the challenge and continuously brought their creativity, innovation, and strength to the world.
To celebrate this and highlight the talent in our community, we are calling to find the Artists to Watch 2021!
The winners will be featured in ArtConnect Magazine, promoted extensively worldwide and considered for any upcoming curatorial projects of ArtConnect. The selected works will be seen by more than 90,000 monthly unique visitors around the world.
Disciplines: All disciplines
Selected artists will be featured in a digital showcase published in January 2021 and kept on display for future reference.
The artists will be promoted extensively on ArtConnect and prominently displayed on the Discover page, where collectors, curators, and art lovers alike come to find new talents.
A dedicated newsletter announcing the winners and linking their profiles will be sent to our audience of devoted art professionals and enthusiastic art lovers.
The artists will be automatically considered for future projects by ArtConnect’s curatorial team, including the first to know about possible opportunities to exhibit, publish, or sell their artworks in cooperation with ArtConnect.
