The Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series
ZuCot Gallery in Atlanta will host the regional semifinalists for the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series national art competition this September. The Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series is a search to discover the next great class of emerging visual artists from North America.
The BOMBAY SAPPHIRE® Artisan Series gives artists the opportunity to compete for a chance to exhibit at art gallery events across the U.S. and Canada. Regional winners will have the opportunity to showcase their work at SCOPE Miami Beach, one of the largest global art fairs in the world.
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE and Artsy will co-host the grand finale event in Miami in December where the Grand Prize Winner will receive a $10,000 USD stipend and a collaboration with Artsy to create a public art installation in New York City in 2019. The Second Place and People’s Choice Winners will each receive a $3,000 USD stipend to create a solo art exhibit in their home city.
Now in its 9th year, the Artisan Series is excited to continue its collaboration with Artsy, the world’s #1 online publication and marketplace for discovering art. This collaboration provides emerging artists with a powerful platform to share their work with some of the best curators, collectors, and art enthusiasts in the world.
Creativity is what inspires all of us to push the boundaries of our imagination, blending new ideas and art forms to create artistry the world has never seen before.
The artists that have been selected as the regional semifinalists will have their artwork on display at ZuCot Gallery starting September 3rd through September 17th.
