The Galerie Emerging Artist Award

The Galerie Emerging Artist Award (GEAA) is an annual prize launched by Galerie magazine. The award recognizes, supports, and promotes promising talents poised to make their mark on the art world. Galerie magazine takes pride in discovering and acknowledging standout emerging artists in every issue of the publication. The award takes this mission one step further by enhancing the careers of these artists through a $10,000 prize, inclusion in an exhibition, and a feature on the winner and finalists.

Galerie founding editor Lisa Fayne Cohen and editor in chief Jacqueline Terrebonne, as well as a distinguished jury of leading artists, curators, museum directors, and gallerists, will select the winner and ten finalists.

The winner receives financial assistance in the form of an unrestricted grant of $10,000. The winner is free to use this grant money in any way.
