The Artisan Series
artist call is open and submissions have started coming in!
ABOUT THE ARTISAN SERIES
Since 2010, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE and the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation have provided emerging artists with an international platform to showcase their work. The Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series is a search to discover this year’s next big name in visual arts. Thousands will submit their artwork online and selected artists will be rewarded with a platform to share their artistry with curators, collectors, and art enthusiasts around the world.
Art is everywhere, just waiting to be discovered. What will you create?

Judges from across the country will select a group of Regional Finalists to be featured in each of the Regional Gallery events. For artists outside the regional locations, judges will select up to 100 online finalists to be featured in an online competition.
REGIONAL GALLERY EVENTS
Regional Finalists compete in a juried exhibit at one of our 14 Regional Gallery events. One Regional Winner from each gallery event will advance and showcase their art at SCOPE Miami Beach.
The online finalists and regional finalists will be featured on the Artisan Series website, which will be open to public voting. The two entries with the highest votes will be deemed the online winners and will advance and showcase their art at SCOPE Miami Beach.
Fourteen (14) Regional Winners and two (2) Online Winners will be invited to exhibit their work in December at SCOPE Miami Beach, one of the largest global art fairs in the world.
In Miami, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE and RUSH Arts co-host a grand finale event where judges will select a Grand Prize and First Prize Winner. Event attendees will vote and select a People’s Choice Winner.
The Grand Prize winner will receive a cash stipend to create a body of work for a solo exhibit at SCOPE Miami Beach 2017 and the opportunity to complete a public installation in 2017. The First Place Winner and People’s Choice Winner will each receive a cash stipend to create a solo exhibit at a gallery in their region.
