International Guild of Realism
Current Exhibition ~ International Guild of Realism Winter Salon Online Exhibition

March 20th - May 20th, 2019
 

Online Exhibition Featuring Cash Awards, National Art Magazine Articles, Prizes, and Gift Certificates!
The International Guild of Realism (IGOR) is proud to present our first ever "IGOR Winter Salon Online Juried Exhibition". We have received many requests from IGOR members to offer an online exhibition whereas entered paintings can receive numerous cash awards and prize certificates without incurring the shipping expense. This year's exhibition is an online juried exhibition for IGOR Members Only and features Cash Awards, Purchase Awards, National Art Magazine Articles, Prizes and Award Certificates! Most, if not all, award categories will offer a cash prize or a major award certificate. Artists were able to enter paintings that are already sold and paintings that are for sale. We have our usual ad marketing campaign and the entire juried show is listed on our IGOR website and on QC Fine Arts website. Plus the entire show is on the new and improved American Art Collector magazine's website with links back to IGOR. We are employing an Art Broker with over 25 years in the art business to assist IGOR with sales. Artists will receive 75% of sales price if paintings are sold and won't have any shipping expense unless their painting sells. This is a whole new experience for us but we believe that online exhibitions will be the wave of the future. IGOR members now have another vehicle to sell paintings with increased marketing exposure and a chance to win major cash and prize awards.
 

About the 2019 Winter Salon
We believe that selling paintings online is the wave of the future especially with younger art buyers so we will be giving a strong effort to make this a success in many ways. We have the entire juried exhibition listed on three major art websites including our active IGOR website, brand new state of the art website of American Art Magazine and the new fine art retailer, QC Fine Arts. Every painting will be listed on these websites and interested collectors will be directed to our IGOR art broker with over 25 years in the art business. We are marketing the Online Exhibition on numerous social networking sites including Facebook, IGOR YouTube Channel, and Instagram. IGOR artists can entersold paintings along with paintings that are for sale. All juried paintings are eligible for the IGOR Awards! When sales are made, IGOR artists will receive 75% of the sales price which is substantially higher than in our gallery sales.

We are putting forth maximum effort to make our first Winter Salon Online Exhibition a smashing success! Although the Cash Awards, Purchase Awards, National Art Magazine Articles and Prize Certificates have been a major draw to enter this exhibition, we are also making every effort to sell as many paintings as possible. We also offered a major discount for ads in American Art Collector magazine in the April issue. We encouraged all of our IGOR members to paint their masterworks and have them finished before the deadline. We are a strong team and will make this exhibition worth remembering!

Cash Awards, National Magazine Articles, Prizes and Gift Certificates
As customary during our annual juried exhibitions, we appointed a guest judge(s) to jury the award winners. The judges are experts in Fine Art Realism and may possibly include gallery owners, award winning artists and museum curators. All winners will receive their below listed Cash Award, Prize, National Art Magazine Article or Award Certificate. All award winners will receive their certificates and award prize by mail after the conclusion of the exhibition.
