STEP UP is a series of six solo exhibitions,open to emerging artists living in New York, New Jersey or New England.

As Real Art Ways grows, our commitment to supporting young and emerging artists remains a touchstone of the organization. With the addition of an exhibition space called the Real Room, there are now more opportunities for artists to exhibit their work at one of America’s leading alternative spaces.
The STEP UP exhibition series seeks to provide emerging artists in our region an exhibition and publication opportunity at a critical moment in their careers. While artists are permitted to propose the exhibition of existing work, the jury will place special emphasis on proposals that call for the creation of new work.
The jury will select work based on: the quality of the artist’s work, the innovation evidenced by the submitted work and proposal, the potential impact of the exhibition on the artist’s career and the economic and physical feasibility of the proposed exhibition.

THIS YEAR'S JURORS: Nato Thompson Chief Curator, Creative Times, NY
Barkley Hendricks Artist & Professor of Art, Connecticut College, CT
Nick Capasso Curator, DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park, MA
Artists selected will receive an exhibition, an exhibition publication, and will be given an opportunity to participate in an artist talk in conjunction with the exhibit schedule. Information on all projects by selected artists including their final exhibition publication will also be available on our web site, which is viewed by 165,000 unique visitors per month.
Selections from the submitted slides, videos, and electronic media that are not chosen by the jury for exhibition will be considered for inclusion in a presentation called Slide Slam.
STEP UP '10 is made possible with the generous support of our Members, the National Endowment for the Arts, Sandy and Howard Fromson, and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
