REGIONAL GALLERY EVENTS

Regional Finalists will compete in a juried exhibit at one of our 13 Regional Gallery events. One Regional Winner from each gallery event will advance and showcase their art at SCOPE Miami Beach.

ONLINE VOTING

Online Finalists and Regional Finalists who were not selected to advance to SCOPE will be featured on the Artisan Series website, which will be open to public voting. The two entries with the highest number of votes will be deemed the online winners and will advance and showcase their art at SCOPE Miami Beach.

Thirteen (13) 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.
