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. Work may include Performance Art, Installation Art, Conceptual Art, Assemblage, Happenings, and short videos of 2 minutes or less.
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! Voting for your favorite art to help an artist win a prize after the contest ended Nov. 21.
Artists could upload up to eight (8) of their works of art for $10 each. Their work was reviewed and then placed on this website for everyone to see. All work shown was eligible for a Winning Prize or Honorable Mention. There will be one winner at $500 and an essay and 5 honorable mentions at $100 each! The awards will be cash awards or a gift certificate to a Bay Area store specializing in art-related services for the Experimental Art group. As well there are 2 more voted awards which all the work was eligible, to be voted on until November 21!
Each category is awarded separately, so that artists are not competing with the entire pool but only those artists within the category they have chosen for each particular work of art. 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 21! Please also come back after that date to see the results. Good luck everyone!
