RE:ARTISTE is an international art organization exposing amateur and professional artists to curators, buyers, art enthusiasts.
Art is a powerful peacemaking force. Look at the human history - in many cases we use works of art as an evidence of the historical and social facts, an illustration of human lifestyle and feelings, in a historic discourse. Through the eyes of artists and photographers we see the world. Through the artists’ vision we are able to view the unseen.
Therefore, exposing artists to the world is our peacemaking mission which connects people of different cultures, origins, and legacies.
While one person is creating, the other one is searching for "his" artwork. RE:ARTISTE is building a network of artists and art enthusiasts to help the artists find their audience. We are about bringing the artwork to a public eye and making the artwork meet its admirer.
OUR GOAL is to expose artists to the world via various art competitions, shows, educational workshops and networking groups. RE:ARTISTE organizes and curates international art competition and art exhibit “Show Your World” in New York City. Also, we have been hosting two networking groups - “Art Terrace” and "The Platform" - offering various workshops and empowering meetups for creative entrepreneurs, amateur and professional artists, and art enthusiasts.
WE ENJOY networking and collaborative activities. Soho Photo Gallery and Gallery MC are among our favorite art organizations where we host art shows, workshops, artist talks.
ART TERRACE, our networking group of the Tri-State Area, aims at building a local community of artists and art enthusiasts. By connecting people at our monthly gatherings, through conversation and sharing multiple knowledge and experiences, RE:ARTISTE builds strong connections among creative beings. By joining the “Art Terrace” networking group you become open to new opportunities, build awareness, add to your overall life experience and career.
OUR WORKSHOP PROGRAM offers various classes for all levels of creatives. Along with that, amateur and professional artists can sign up for the workshops empowering their entrepreneur skills. At our workshops the guests expand their creative vision, learn new skills, get professional advice, build new connections, and - for sure - have fun!
IN THE PAST, RE:ARTISTE has accomplished many exciting projects. We’ve been working with visual and performance artists, designers and producers. Artists from 43 countries took part in our International Art Competition, "Show Your World", which resulted in the unprecedented international art and social event in January 2016. The "theater+visual art" collaboration "Kiss Me or Cut Off My Head", participation in DUMBO Arts Festival, art residency "Daughters of Troy" on Governors Island are among our favorite projects.
THERE IS A GREAT TEAM of creative minds behind the operation of RE:ARTISTE. Our competitions are evaluated and judged by artists, educators, art business professionals.
