VisArts welcomes artists ages 17–27 in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area to submit their application for NextGen 10.0, our exhibition of works by young, local artists. The exhibit will be presented in the Kaplan Gallery from June 14-August 13, 2023.
NextGen 10.0 is a unique opportunity for aspiring artists who have little or no experience exhibition experience to show their work in a professional gallery and participate in related programming, including an opening reception and artist talks, conversations with other emerging artists, critiques with local curators and arts administrators who work with young artists, and additional professional development opportunities.
Applicants should have little or no experience exhibiting in a professional gallery. Prior NextGen participants are ineligible. NextGen applicants who weren’t selected for previous exhibitions may re-apply this year.
