The Washington Post’s Real Art D.C.

Competition for local artists – check it out! (click link above)

Real Art D.C. is seeking works by local artists
Friday, April 9, 2010; C08

Attention artists:

Jessica Dawson is hitting the studios to uncover Washington talent.

It’s all part of Real Art D.C., the Washington Post’s exciting new platform for contemporary art in the Washington region. There’s also a related competition open to all area artists.

What is Real Art D.C.? An online virtual gallery of works by local artists that will allow Post readers to discover and connect with Washington’s newest talents. Artists themselves will post their own work — and so will dealers and teachers on their behalf — and anyone can click through and see the spectrum of local creativity.

Here’s how it works: Upload images at http://www.washingtonpost.com/real-art-dc. Next month our Galleries columnist will begin sifting through the uploads to Real Art D.C. and picking 10 artists from the virtual gallery to spotlight in a new online feature.

Throughout the spring and summer, she will choose a new artist-finalist every few weeks and visit the artist’s studio, reporting about what she finds on the Real Art D.C. site. The 10th finalist will be selected sometime after Sept. 30, the last day of submissions to Real Art D.C.

Once the top 10 are chosen, we’ll open up voting so that washingtonpost.com users can choose the finalist they like best. The winning artist will be profiled in our pages (and, of course, online).
Artists, surprise us. Challenge us. Corcoran, MICA and VCU students — show us your work. (And self-taught talent, too!)

See you in the studio!
