International Guild of Realism
Upcoming Exhibition ~ International Guild of Realism Fall Salon Online Exhibition

September 20th - December 15th, 2024  |  Entry Deadline July 15th, 2024

The International Guild of Realism (IGOR) is proud to announce a Call for Entries for our upcoming IGOR 2024 Fall Salon Online Juried Exhibition. After numerous successful Online Exhibitions in terms of sales, marketing exposure and magazine articles, we are very excited about our upcoming Fall Salon for IGOR members only. Many IGOR artists have thoroughly enjoyed these online exhibitions, especially our international members since no shipping is required unless the artwork sells.

This 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 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. AAC magazine will be doing several e-blasts promoting the Fall Salon to their 180,000 collector list! 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 won’t have any shipping expense unless your painting sells. IGOR members will have another vehicle to sell paintings with increased marketing exposure and a chance to win cash and prize awards.


About the 2024 Fall 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. Plus sales have been very good in our past online exhibitions. We will have the juried exhibition listed on major art websites including our active IGOR website and new state of the art website of American Art Collector magazine. 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 Fall Salon Online Exhibition on numerous social networking sites including Instagram and the IGOR YouTube Channel. 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 Two Important Art Websites

International Guild of Realism

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

We will put forth maximum effort to make our Fall Salon Online Exhibition a smashing success! We are asking you 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 July 15th so you have less time than usual and there will be no extension! Although the Cash 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.
