This is the category for artists whose artwork is hard to define in other conventional terms. Your work may be time based, or exist outside of the gallery or even easy to access public places. It may be ephemeral. Your work may include Performance Art, Installation Art, Conceptual Art, Assemblage, Happenings, and short videos. If you have documented your work in video, please make it 2 minutes or less. If your work is longer than 2 minutes, please email the Sheridan Prize for Art and tell us more about it, although a maximum length of 5 minutes will be the limit. If your work is in video, please upload it first to a YouTube channel and if accepted we can link to it.
If you are a Viewer and visitor, please take a look below at some of the art that has been created in the 9 counties of the Bay Area in this first ever regional series of art prizes. There are other categories you will find very interesting, please visit this one and all the others as well.
And if you are a viewer, please consider donating a tax-deductible donation or perhaps purchase a print from some other Bay Area artists who want to sell some of their work to help fund this first ever regional Prize for Art!
If you are an artist and participate in the Prize, you can sign up and then upload up to eight (8) of your works of art for $10 each. Your work will be reviewed and then placed immediately up on this website for everyone to see, in one of more of the juried categories. Your work will then be eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable mention. As well there are 2 voted awards which your work would also be eligible for, to be voted on after the Prize for Art closes on November 1!
Each category is awarded separately. There will be a winner at $500 and an essay and 5 honorable mentions at $100 each, per category for a total of 72 prizes! Each artist is eligible for one award per category. Works that have won in the previous Prize for Art are not eligible for the 2022 Sheridan Prize for Art. The Winner and Honorable Mentions will be announced here as soon as possible after November 14! Please also come back after that date to see the results!
