1st Annual ART EXPO 2023

As part of our mission at BAM!, we are committed to uncovering new talent and becoming a platform for emerging artists in Western New York. As part of our vision, we are proud to produce the first (hopefully, of many more to come) Emerging Artists Exhibition.


We would like to invite emerging artists to participate in a curated art exhibition/competition by submitting a piece of artwork.


Eligibility Criteria: To be considered in this exhibition, you must be an emerging artist residing in Western New York (WNY). Ongoing, formally or self-trained artists are welcome to apply. For this exhibition, to be considered an emerging WNY artist you should fulfill the following:


  • No prior solo exhibition shows.
    • Artists who had previously participated in group show exhibitions or training-related exhibitions are allowed to participate
  • Be a resident of Western New York
  • Have an Instagram or a Social Media presence


Entries will be evaluated by our invited Judges/Curators. Up to 75 pieces will be selected for the Exhibition. Artists will be blindly selected by the curators based on the image of the work submitted.
