ISEA was formed in 1991 to give all mediums a venue to have work shown in an annual juried exhibition within the United States or abroad. The society of experimental artists, explores, learns, and applies new techniques, new composition approaches, or new concepts to create. Their philosophy is about having an attitude of experimentation, looking at the “what ifs” in art. "We try and we try again. Our art can be realistic or abstraction, it is our approach to making the art and the aesthetic results that count. 
We are pleased to offer approximately $14,000 in prizes, including a $2,000 Best of Show Award. This year we are able to accept up to 90 pieces of art 2D, 3D, and small installations."
