STEP UP is a series of six solo exhibitions open to emerging artists living in New York, New Jersey or New England.
The STEP UP exhibition series seeks to provide emerging artists in our region an exhibition and publication opportunity at a critical moment in their careers. While artists are permitted to propose the exhibition of existing work, the jury places special emphasis on proposals that call for the creation of new work.
STEP UP 2013 accepts submissions entirely online, and is free of charge to all applicants. Past Applicants are encouraged to apply.
