Online PR News – 26-July-2013 – New Orleans, LA – This fall, New Orleans artists, artisans, and creatives will have an exceptional opportunity to reach a wider audience, see their work exhibited during one of the Crescent City’s premier art events, and even win a trip to Miami for Art Basel.
The Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, sponsored by Bombay Sapphire Gin and the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation and presented locally by L’Entrepot Gallery and Cathedral Creative Studios, is a nationwide competition aimed at providing exposure to up-‐and-‐coming artists. 2013 marks New Orleans's second year of participation in the series.
"The response to last year's event was staggering," says Loc Pham, Creative Director at Cathedral Creative Studios. "In our first year of participation, New Orleans saw some of the highest attendance figures of all of the host cities. We're excited to see even more talent and excitement this year."
Local artists are encouraged to submit their original work on the official competition website, http://www.BombayArtisan.com by August 30th, 2013. Multiple entries in all visual formats [except for video and film] will be accepted. Submissions must be made online.
