UNTAPPED Emerging Artists is a juried competition that awards new artists an opportunity to participate in a dedicated feature space at a professional-level art fair. This program aims to provide a platform for artists to launch their artwork to a public audience, make connections within the arts industry and gain experience in the contemporary art world.

Selected from hundreds of applications, 20 of the country’s best up-and-coming artists are invited to showcase their work for FREE!
