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

March 20th - May 20th, 2020
 

Entry Deadline January 20th, 2020

The International Guild of Realism (IGOR) is proud to announce a Call for Entries for our upcoming "IGOR Spring Salon Online Juried Exhibition". After our first ever successful Winter Salon Online Exhibition earlier this year, 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 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 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!

We will put forth maximum effort to make our Spring 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 January 20th 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. 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!
