As the stateâ€™s only large format magazine competition, for our 3rd consecutive year IRREVERSIBLE has introduced the work of thousands – local, estate, national and international artists – working in all media: emerging, mid-career, and established artists. Our annual Featured Artists Competition reinforces Irreversible commitment to artists, provides professional exhibition opportunities for emerging artists, and reveals a provocative and aggressive glimpse â€“ through artistsâ€™ eyes â€“ of the state-of-the-art today through paintings, sculpture, photographs, video and installations. The results of the Featured Artists contest were based on the judgeâ€™s extensive experience and knowledge of works that engage audiences with contemporary visual art, creative thinking, and most importantly; an educational component inspiring future generations. The presentation and technical merits of each entry were extremely important, as well as the quality of the work and the information provided in the application.
There is no doubt an artist grows by leaps and bounds when he or she puts artwork in the public eye for feedback, and that is what this art competitions is all about. History, patronage, commissions, and incredible opportunities have all been prizes afforded to winners of major art competitions. Big part of my dream is that IRREVERSIBLE Projects, Exhibitions And The Magazine further the reach and spectrum of opportunities available for an artist of any experience level and medium.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
