"Work of Art: the Next Great Artist" Starts June 9th on Bravo -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

June 9th Bravo TV starts its new show "Work of Art: the Next Great Artist."  Bravo's new reality show will bring together 14 aspiring artists to compete for a solo show at a nationally recognized museum and a generous cash prize.  It sounds like it will be in the vain of "Project Runway."  Each week the artists will be given tasks that will be judged.  One artist a week will be eliminated until we have a winner.

Hosting this  new series is art enthusiast China Chow, alongside world-renowned art auctioneer, Simon de Pury.  Joining them on the judging panel are experts Bill Powers, a New York Gallery owner and literary art contributor, Jerry Saltz, current art critic for New York Magazine, and Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, curator and owner of Salon94 gallery.

In each episode, contestants are faced with the challenge of creating unique pieces in a variety of media such as painting, sculpture, photography, collage and industrial design. The weekly assignments are exciting, original and will challenge the artists to push the limits of their technical skills and creative boundaries. Completed works of art will be appraised by the panel of top art world figures alongside a new celebrated guest judge every week. Through a gallery showing at the end of each challenge, the industry luminaries dictate which artists have successfully mastered the subject matter and creation of their piece, as well as whose concept leaves the greatest impact.

"Work of Art: The Next Great Artist" is produced by Pretty Matches and Magical Elves for Bravo. Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alison Benson and Eli Holzman serve as executive producers.
