(e)merge Now Accepting Applications

I mentioned this awhile back, now it seems they finally have some updated information, and are accepting applications.
The (e)merge art fair celebrates galleries, artists, artists' work and the creative process. The Fair garners support from all corners of the artworld and aims to create an energetic environment of collaboration and discovery.

(e)merge will take place September 22 - 25, 2011, in Washington, DC, within blocks of the U.S. Capitol Building, at the Capitol Skyline Hotel. The Fair will feature dozens of international galleries and nonprofits in the Hotel rooms on designated exhibition floors. Throughout the Hotel's public areas and grounds, (e)merge will provide exhibition space, free of charge, for vetted works in various media by artists who are currently not represented.

All submissions will be reviewed by an international vetting committee and the decisions of the committee are final. To download an artist application please click here (PDF)
