ArtPop! is Magnetic’s visual arts initiative programed by the Cultural Arts Creatives. Our curatorial focus looks to engaging fresh, emerging artistic trailblazers to build the foundation for a creative space where the unconventional wakes the soul. In essence ArtPop! serves as a catalyst for a body of artwork that is a mix of the experimental with the hot & trending.
Selection of Exhibiting Visual Artists
Our aim, whether we exhibit experimental or traditional works, is to adhere to the highest standards of quality. While we seek beautifully executed work, we also value work that is innovative, artwork that presents the artist’s unique voice, and work that engages the viewer intellectually, emotionally, as well as visually.
At Magnetic the selection process is done as a Direct Selection. Direct Selection: is where the Artistic Director / Curator works with local arts organizations and artists who are know as visionaries in their field to orchestrate a list of artists that will provide a gallery schedule that will appeal to the community at large. Emerging interspersed with mid to professional career artists are considered for Magnetic’s ArtPop! exhibits.
ArtPop! seeks artists who have developed, and continue to develop, a strong, cohesive, and exciting body of work centered on a common idea or element for our prestigious exhibits.
