1st Salamander International Art Prize Monteoliveto Gallery, in search of new artistic adventures, has decided to set out towards a new appointment dedicated to contemporary art which, as always, highlights and enhances its interpreters. With this in mind, the 1st Salamander International Art Prize was born, a prize dedicated to contemporary art.
We chose the Salamander to represent our prize, as it was one of the animals that fascinated our beloved director, Chantal Lora, who sadly left us in 2022.
Chantal Lora was also Monteoliveto Gallery’s co-founder and in the last 20 years she has carried out, with a smile, an energetic and passionate work, to make the gallery’s artists, coming from all over the world, known, throughout Europe with always original events. For this reason and for many others, from the first moment we thought of dedicating this Prize to her memory. In this way her positive spirit will always be linked to the Art world.
The Jury, made up of art professionals - will select 20 works as finalists that will be part of a special catalogue, of which the selected artists will receive a copy. - will decide ONE winning work among the 20 finalists. This work will be the winner of the 1st Salamander International Art Prize
The winner of the 1st Salamander International Art Prize will participate, with his work, in an art fair in 2023, in the Monteoliveto Gallery stand.
TWO works will be awarded with the Public Award and the Monteoliveto Gallery Award. - The Public Award will be awarded by voting on social networks and on the gallery website. Voting is open to everyone. - The winner of the Public Award will participate, with his work, in the collective exhibition of the Monteoliveto Gallery: #ArtCrossings which will be held at the Casa Museo Spazio Tadini in Milan, from 13 March to 6 April 2023. - The winner of the Monteoliveto Gallery Award will participate, with his work, in a collective exhibition in the Monteoliveto Home Gallery in Naples.
