NEW ORLEANS, LA.- The Jonathan Ferrara Gallery announced the jury winners for the 14th Annual NO DEAD ARTISTS National Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Art. This edition marks the first time this long-running juried exhibition will feature artists from across the entire US.

The exhibition opens on Saturday September 4, 2010 with an artists' reception from 6 - 9pm. Each year the show draws thousands of art enthusiasts and focuses attention on an emerging generation of contemporary artists that are poised to breakthrough into the greater art world.

The No Dead Artists juried exhibition was founded in 1995 to give a voice to emerging artists. The exhibition's name is derived from the old adage that artists never achieve any success until they die. No Dead Artists turns that on its head and gives emerging artists their first break into the art world. In the 90's, the exhibition was open only to New Orleans artists and then it grew to include artists of Louisiana. Now in its 14th edition, the exhibition has expanded to become a national juried exhibition open to artists from the entire US.

The exhibition has been a springboard for several artists leading to national press coverage, national recognition, gallery representation and acquisitions by museums and other prominent collections. Each year gallery owner Jonathan Ferrara invites a panel of renowned arts professional and collectors to select the newest creative talents. The exhibition opening draws thousands of art enthusiasts to the gallery to see this new generation of emerging talent.
