18th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art

Jonathan Ferrara Gallery

Fifteen Artists Selected by Prestigious Jury To Exhibit In New Orleans :::

Jonathan Ferrara Gallery is pleased to announce the 18th edition of the annual NO DEAD ARTISTS International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art. The exhibition will run from 27 August through 27 September with an opening reception on Saturday, 30 August, from 6-9 pm.

The NO DEAD ARTISTS exhibition was founded in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. The exhibition’s name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. NO DEAD ARTISTS turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. In the 90’s, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and subsequently grew to include artists of Louisiana. In 2010, the exhibition expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire US, and now in 2014 the call is international.

The exhibition has been a springboard for numerous artists leading to national press coverage, recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections. Each year gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara invites a panel of renowned arts professional and collectors to select the newest creative talents, and the exhibition draws a crowd of thousands interested in discovering the work of this selected group of emerging artists. The exhibition serves as a rite of passage for many artists, some of whom are developing their initial relationship with a commercial gallery.

Now in its 18th edition, the exhibition has been a springboard for numerous artists leading to national press coverage, recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections.
