International Guild of Realism
Current Exhibition ~ International Guild of Realism Winter Salon Online Exhibition

March 20th - May 20th, 2019  |  Entry Deadline February 3rd, 2019

Online Exhibition Featuring Cash Awards, National Art Magazine Articles, Prizes, and Gift Certificates!
The International Guild of Realism (IGOR) is proud to announce a Call for Entries for our first ever "IGOR Winter Salon Online Juried Exhibition". We have received many requests from IGOR members to offer an online exhibition whereas entered paintings can receive numerous cash awards and prize certificates without incurring the shipping expense. This year's exhibition will be an online juried exhibition for IGOR Members Only and will feature Cash Awards, Purchase Awards, National Art Magazine Articles, Prizes and Award Certificates! Most, if not all, award categories will offer a cash prize or a major award certificate. You will be able to enter paintings that are already sold and paintings that are for sale. We will have our usual Ad marketing campaign and the entire juried show will be listed on our IGOR website and on QC Fine Arts website. Plus the entire show will be on the new and improved American Art Collector magazine's website with links back to IGOR. We will be employing an Art Broker with over 25 years in the art business to assist IGOR with sales. Artists will receive 75% of sales price if paintings are sold and you won't have any shipping expense unless your painting sells. This will be a whole new experience for us but we believe that online exhibitions will be the wave of the future. IGOR members will have another vehicle to sell paintings with increased marketing exposure and a chance to win major cash and prize awards.

About the 2019 Winter Salon
We believe that selling paintings online will be the wave of the future especially with younger art buyers so we will be giving a strong effort to make this a success in many ways. We will have the entire juried exhibition listed on three major art websites including our active IGOR website, brand new state of the art website of American Art Magazine and the new fine art retailer, QC Fine Arts. Every painting will be listed on these websites and interested collectors will be directed to our IGOR art broker with over 25 years in the art business. We will market the Online Exhibition on numerous social networking sites including Facebook, IGOR YouTube Channel and Instagram. IGOR artists can enter Sold paintings along with paintings that will be for sale. All juried paintings will be eligible for the IGOR Awards! When sales are made, IGOR artists will receive 75% of the sales price which is substantially higher than in our gallery sales.


The Entire Juried Show Will Be Featured on Three Important Art Websites

International Guild of Realism

American Art Collector Magazine
Leading realist art magazine in America featuring a brand new and improved website.

Quality Collections of Fine Art
Specializing in selling fine realist art through a major online gallery website and a brick and mortar gallery in Arizona.

We will put forth maximum effort to make our first Winter Salon Online Exhibition a smashing success! We are asking you and members of IGOR to send in your very best and most creative masterworks. Like we mentioned above, you can enter some of your best Sold paintings which will also be eligible for the many IGOR awards. The entry deadline is January 20th so you have less time than usual and there will be no extension! Although the Cash Awards, Purchase Awards, National Art Magazine Articles and Prize Certificates will be a major draw to enter this exhibition, we will also make every effort to sell as many paintings as possible. We also plan to offer a major discount Ad offer from American Art Collector magazine in the April issue. We encourage all of our IGOR members to start painting their masterworks and have them finished before the deadline. Let's be a strong team and make this exhibition worth remembering. Mark your calendar and pick up the brushes! Happy painting/drawing!
