27th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS: International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art

JONATHAN FERRARA GALLERY proudly hosts the 27th iteration of our annual call for artists - NO DEAD ARTISTS: International Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art. The call is open through 19 JUNE 2023 and the exhibition participants are selected by an ever-changing group of three prestigious arts professionals. The exhibition itself is installed in the gallery for the entire month of September with an opening reception in conjunction with the Arts District New Orleans’ First Saturday Gallery Openings in September 2023 from 6-9 pm. The exhibition’s name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve success until they are dead. NO DEAD ARTISTS turns that notion on its head and gives emerging artists their first break in the art world. The exhibition has been a springboard for numerous artists leading to national press coverage, recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections. Each year the gallery invites a panel of renowned arts professionals and collectors to select the newest creative talents. Learn more and apply through our website link featured below.

 Finalists will be featured in the group exhibition in September 2023. One selected finalist will be awarded a solo exhibition in 2024.
