Fine Art in Towns Under 10,000en español
The goal of the Nebraska Rural Living’s Fine Art in Towns Under 10,000 Gallery is to showcase rural Nebraska artists to the world, and at the same time increase interest and knowledge of rural Nebraska through the arts.
The NRL Art Gallery invites artists who live in Nebraska towns with a population of less than 10,000 to submit their artwork for a juried selection process each quarter. There is no fee to enter.
At this time, the gallery is accepting the following types of art: paintings, drawings, photographs and sculptures.
The art will be juried by three prominent Nebraska artists who also live in towns under 10,000. The selected artist or artists will be featured on the Nebraska Rural Living online art gallery where they can promote, display and sell their art through their own web site.
The online gallery gives artists a worldwide audience of more than 40,000 Nebraska Rural Living readers. The NRL online magazine features monthly stories that illustrate through words and photos that rural Nebraska is vibrant and business-friendly and has amenities that appeal to families, retirees, entrepreneurs and tourists.
Fine Art in Towns Under 10,000 is made possible by private donors and the following sponsors:
- August 1
- November 1
- February 1
- May 1
- Entries must be a painting, drawing, sculpture or photograph.
- Artist must have an address in a Nebraska town of 10,000 or less.
- Artists 18 years old and older may apply.
- Files must be in JPG format.
- File uploads may not exceed 2Mb each.
- Art may be resubmitted the following quarter if it’s not selected for the current quarter.
Art will be judged on the following criteria:
- Craftsmanship, quality and knowledge of the media used
- Composition and layout
- Color value and contrast
- Uniqueness, creativity and overall appeal
Artwork will be juried without knowing the name of the artist, and each of the four criteria will be ranked 1-5 to determine the quarterly featured artist.
The quarterly selected featured artist or artists will be contacted by the 15th of the month of the entry deadline (Example, entries submitted for Aug. 1 will be contacted by Aug. 15). Non-selected artists will not be contacted.
