Emerge 2018

Emerge 2018 is the tenth in a biennial series of exhibitions hosted by Bullseye Projects in Portland, Oregon.

Awards in this international juried competition include a total of $22,000 in Bullseye Glass gift cards, recognition at an awards ceremony, as well as representation in a full-color catalog. Selected award winners will be included in a national tour culminating in an exhibition at the Bellevue Arts Museum.

Students and artists who are not represented by major galleries are encouraged to apply. Works will be judged on excellence of craftsmanship, design and creativity, and must be made with Bullseye glasses.
