A juried kiln-glass exhibition for emerging and intermediate-level artists, Emerge 2016 is the ninth juried kiln-glass exhibition for emerging artists sponsored by Bullseye Glass Company, a manufacturer of colored glass for art and architecture. Hosted at Bullseye Projects (formerly Bullseye Gallery), this biennial exhibition recognizes students and early-career artists who are rising through the ranks of kilnformed studio glass but are not yet represented by major commercial galleries.
Emerge 2016 offers over $22,000 in prizes in the form of Bullseye gift cards or credit, recognition at an award ceremony, and representation in a full-color exhibition catalog with photos, bios, and artist statements. Selected finalists will be included in Emerge/Evolve 2016, a national tour culminating in an exhibition at the Bellevue Arts Museum.
Students and artists who are not represented by major galleries are encouraged to apply. Works will be judged on excellence of craftsmanship, design, and creativity, and must be made of Bullseye glasses.
