“Since its inception in 2014 the NewNow has been a very different exhibition each year, based on the jurors’ selections. One thing that has remained constant is the quality and variety of the work of our NEO artists as epitomized by all of the entries as well as the final work chosen for the exhibition. The NewNow was conceived as a means to highlight and celebrate this variety for the world to see, and it continues to do so. The NewNow is set apart from the throng of other regional juried art exhibitions, through its consistent use of highly qualified, non-regional jurors. “The NewNow offers local artists a unique opportunity to get their work in front of fresh eyes and seeks to rise above the local art politics which can often lead to the same artists being selected for shows repeatedly.”
