Visual Overture Magazine selects 7 emerging artists for feature in our publication each quarter through our "Emerging Artists Competition". Selected artists are presented on a two-page spread with images of their work, interview questions, artist statement, and contact details.
Artists displayed in Visual Overture benefit from our highly targeted distribution list consisting of 1000+ readers including over 200 identified fine art galleries, curators, art collectors, and a growing subscription readership. In addition, each selected artist receives 3 complimentary copies of the issue in which they are featured.
We also hold specialized competitions on various themes to be published in our "Spotlight" section of the magazine. Previous themes have been "Spotlight on the South," "Spotlight on Video Art," "Spotlight on Art & Faith," and "Spotlight on Portraits," just to name a few. Each quarter there is a new theme for the "Spotlight" series.
So, what is an emerging artist? An emerging professional artist is defined as a person who is not currently enrolled in any undergraduate courses, and is consistently working to establish a career in the visual arts field.
