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

March 20th - May 20th, 2020
 

The International Guild of Realism (IGOR) is proud to announce our upcoming "IGOR Spring Salon Online Juried Exhibition". After our first ever successful Winter Salon Online Exhibition in 2019, we have decided to offer another Online Exhibition for IGOR members only in 2020. Plus we have received many requests from IGOR members especially international members to offer another online exhibition. This year's exhibition will be an online juried exhibition and will feature Cash Awards, National Art Magazine Articles, Prizes and Gift 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 new IGOR website and mobile version. 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. This is still a 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 cash and prize awards.
 

About the 2020 Spring 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 juried exhibition listed on major art websites including our active IGOR website and brand new state of the art website of American Art Magazine. Plus we will have links back to the IGOR website from our corporate sponsor, 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!

 

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

We will put forth maximum effort to make our Spring Salon Online Exhibition a smashing success! Although the Cash Awards, National Art Magazine Articles and Prize Certificates are 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.

 

Key Dates
Entry Deadline: February 3rd, 2020
Juried Results Announced: February 8th - 10th, 2020
Exhibition Dates: March 20th - May 20th, 2020

 

Selected Artists
The International Guild of Realism has recently completed the final jury results for our Spring Salon Online Exhibition. We had a huge number of paintings entered (over 700), and without a doubt, the quality was at a very high level. Thanks again, for entering our Spring Salon and for submitting such wonderful artwork.

Once again we received an amazing array of superb entries and our jury committee was quite impressed with the quality and creativity of the work entered. After reviewing the images over a week period, the final jury was completed. Deciding upon a limited number of paintings/drawings wasn't an easy accomplishment, and the jurors could not resist adding many more pieces to this exhibition than originally planned. A high percentage of the entered IGOR artists made it through to the final jury so please realize that you always have a good chance at being juried into a future IGOR event because of our small and juried only membership. We have artists from over 20 countries (most ever) represented in the Spring Salon Final Jury including Canada, Norway, USA, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Sweden, Lithuania, Russia, Ukraine, Switzerland, Philippines, Mexico, Greece, Australia, France, Thailand, UK, Spain, Hong Kong and India. Plus we have a huge diversity of media in the exhibition including Acrylic, Watercolor, Oil, Soft Pastel, Colored Pencil, Graphite, Pastel, Ink, Tempera, Scratchboard and Gouache.
 

Congratulations to this year's selected artists!
