Plot Synopsis

In this hour-long competition series, 14 aspiring artists vie for the grand prize -- a gallery show, a cash prize and a sponsored national tour -- and the chance to be called the best contemporary artist in America. 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. Completed works of art are 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. Art enthusiast China Chow hosts and world-renowned art auctioneer, Simon de Pury, is the artistic mentor. Expert judges include: Bill Powers, a New York Gallery owner and literary art contributor; Jerry Saltz, current art critic for New York Magazine; and Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, esteemed curator and owner of Salon94 gallery. Produced by Magical Elves -- best known to Bravo viewers for its work on "Top Chef" -- and Pretty Matches, Sarah Jessica Parker's production company.
