Submissions for the 2013 Juried Fine Art Search are now being accepted. Art Buzz Publishing, founded in 2007, offers an alternative to mainstream art publications and a way for lesser known and undiscovered visual artists to showcase their work to an international audience. Most of the current visual art created is by struggling and unknown artists living in various parts of the world yet most of the art publications only feature the work of artists that have achieved a certain amount of notoriety. Those mainstream publications have no incentive to seek out lesser known artists because they cater to major galleries and museums which, as a rule, only show work by established artists. Therein exists a void and it is the mission of Art Buzz Publishing to fill that void with this – the premier annual Contemporary Visual Arts Showcase, hardcover publication.
Through our annual Art Buzz fine art search, we call out to passionate emerging and mid-career visual artists throughout the world. They are encouraged to enter this juried competition and, those artists that are awarded with inclusion in the book, are chosen solely on the merits of their work—not their resume, background, biography, etc. And, unlike many other publications, artists can not buy their way into this book. Talented, hardworking artists of all the various visual art media are welcome to answer the call to enter. In this way, Art Buzz will continue to publish these premier publications with one mission – to showcase an eclectic collection of exciting, contemporary visual art from around the world.
Art Buzz, the book, is an annual, full-color, fine quality, large (10″ x 10″) format, hardcover publication that is scheduled for release in January of each year with a vigorous distribution plan targeted directly to the International Fine Art Community. Truly, this is a beautiful book, not a magazine. Each volume of Art Buzz will be available to order directly from Art Buzz and additional copies will be distributed directly to active art dealers and collectors in the United States and other parts of the world
