Visual Arts

 

Emerging artists in visual arts are those visual artists at an early stage in their career who have created a modest independent body of work and have made a locally recognized contribution to their discipline through public presentation of their work.

Mid-career artists in visual arts are those who have created an independent body of work and have made a regionally or nationally recognized contribution to their discipline through public presentation of their work outside their local community. This category should require at least seven years of professional arts practice after basic training in the field.

Senior artists in visual arts are those at a mature stage in their careers who have created an extensive independent body of work and have made a nationally or internationally recognized contribution to their discipline through public presentation of their work, have achieved recognition through shows and exhibitions, and have received accolades, awards and reviews. This category should require at least 15 years of professional arts practice after basic training in the field.
