VisArts welcomes artists ages 17 – 27 in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area to submit their application for NextGen 9.0. This exhibition will be presented in the VisArts Kaplan Gallery from June 3 – August 7, 2022. This will present a unique opportunity for aspiring artists with little to no experience to exhibit their work in a professional gallery. Programming for this exhibition will include conversations with other emerging artists, critiques with local curators/arts administrators who work with young artists, along with other professional development opportunities.
VisArts is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform individuals and communities through the visual arts. VisArts provides children, teens, and adults with opportunities to express their creativity and enhance their awareness of the arts.
Please keep in mind that submission does not guarantee acceptance. Applicants should have little or no experience exhibiting in a professional gallery. Previous NextGen participants are ineligible. Previous NextGen applicants who were not selected may re-apply for this year’s exhibition.
After reviewing all works, selected artists will be notified by April 18.
