Artist Statements

Please provide an artist statement. An artist statement includes:

1.     A general introduction to your work, a body of work, or a specific project.

2.     It should open with the work’s basic ideas in an overview of two or three sentences or a short paragraph.

3.     The second paragraph should go into detail about how these issues or ideas are presented in the work.

4.     The final paragraph should restate the most important points in the statement.

There is no right or wrong way to prepare an artist statement. The statement will simply provide insight to the selection committee to make more informed decision about their selection of artists for the Exhibition.
