VisArts Galleries invites your students to apply for NextGen 4.0 in our Kaplan Gallery. NextGen features aspiring 17 to 27-year-old local artists who have little to no experience exhibiting their work in a professional gallery. NextGen offers these artists an opportunity to bring their artwork to the public and to experience this process. The exhibition was developed to address this demographic of artists which may include high school students, undergraduate students or recent grads who are uncertain about how to proceed with a career in art or what it takes to be an artist.
The process to apply for an exhibition can be intimidating with little or no experience. Included in our application site are a number of resources to help your student create a competitive application and to develop their professional practices as an artist.
We hope that you will encourage your students to apply to NextGen 4.0. The application deadline is June 1, 2017, 11:59 PM and the exhibition will take place July 21– August 20th at VisArts in Rockville, Maryland. You can find the application and more details on our website: www.visarts.submittable.com/submit/81402/nextgen-4-0.
