The NW Art Alliance is happy to announce their first ever
Emerging Artist Program

Emerging artists are the future of tomorrow's art, but it's not always an easy path. We want to help ease the journey from emerging artist to successful, experienced artist by offering the chance to be part of the Fall Best of the Northwest show.

The Best of the Northwest Art and Fine Craft Show is a 3-day event showcasing the art of over some of the best artists in the Pacific Northwest. The Fall show is held in two "acts" - Oct 24-26th and Nov 14th-16th. A winner will be selected for each act. Each event showcases 109 artists and features live musical performances, delicious cuisine from local vendors, artist demonstrations and even an artists' dinner, where the emerging artist will get to mingle, dine and network with the artists and curators of the show.

The winner will receive a booth space in the Best of the Northwest show and will also be paired with a NW Art Alliance legacy artist mentor. The mentor will be a NWAA member and an experienced artist in their field who can share their experience and expertise, and help the emerging artist prepare for the event by being available to answer questions and "show them the ropes" of participating in the premier art and fine craft show in Seattle. The mentor will donate 3 hrs of their time each month for the 2 months preceding the show to their protege to help them prepare for their BNW debut. Not only that, but the winning emerging artist will also receive...

  • 10x6 booth with complimentary Pole and Drape and electricity (valued over $600)
  • Advance promotional material to offset marketing costs
  • Coverage in our newsletter and social media
  • Special "Emerging Artist" listing in the show program
