Calling Artists Over 60!

Last year around this time, we put out a call to artists over 60 (not knowing at all what we were getting ourselves into). We received more than 600 nominations, and the resulting article, “Splendid Over 60” in the March 2008 issue, featured the work of 21 stellar artists.

We’re bringing it back for an encore! If you (or someone you know) are a fabulous artist 60 or older, we want to know!

Feel free to nominate yourself—we won’t think you’re conceited! (But please don’t have all your friends, relatives and neighbors e-mail us. This isn’t a popularity contest—we only need your name once for you to be in the running.)

And because our intention is to showcase artists unfamiliar to us, we ask those artists who were among the 2008 crop of “Splendid over 60” and/or have had their work featured in The Artist’s Magazine within the last three years to give others a chance.

How to enter: Send five to 10 images (on a CD, as slides, or visible on a website) and the artist’s name, birth date and contact information (e-mail, phone and/or mailing address). We regret that we can only return materials if they are accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Do not, under any circumstances, send the only existing copies of your slides or prints!

The deadline for nominations is October 1, 2008.

E-mail your submission to, or mail it to:
Artists over 60
The Artist’s Magazine
4700 E. Galbraith Road
Cincinnati OH 45236

We ask, too, that you please refrain from calling or e-mailing us to check if we received your submission; we cannot respond to every submission. We will get in touch with the selected artists by the end of October.

Make sure to read the March 2009 issue of The Artist’s Magazine to see who makes the cut!
