Hillyer Art Space is currently accepting submissions for Young Contemporaries, a group exhibition to be held in August 2013. We invite all current and recent art students with their fresh perspectives in the art world to apply. All mediums are accepted and work should focus on the subject of Young Contemporaries. This subject is open for interpretation by the artists, whether it is how you view young artists in the contemporary art scene, or what you feel the "Young Contemporary" scene is about. One cash Grand Prize will be awarded to the best entry, and selected entires will be exhibited in Hillyer Art Space for the month of August in 2013.
This exhibition will be curated by Hillyer Art Space Artist Advisory Member, Pat Goslee. Goslee received her M.F.A. from Catholic University and her B.F.A. from the University of Georgia.
