All majors (undergraduate and graduate) in the Department of Art are invited and encouraged to participate in the forthcoming juried art exhibition. Minors who are currently taking art classes must request permission from the Art Department Chairman. Works submitted should be previously unshown in the gallery, produced while attending Howard University, and date from the periods of 2013 – 2015.  The submissions must be exhibition-ready (hanging apparatus included, matted and/or framed) and in the following categories:

Art works in a series (size and number) will be reviewed due to limited gallery space and number of participants; oversized works must be brought to the attention of the gallery staff before submission.  Students are required to obtain the computers, pedestals and/or dress forms necessary for presentation of their work. If necessary, unframed paper submissions such as printed photography or graphic designs are acceptable for jurying process only – if accepted, these works must be framed and/or matted for installation. The juror will make a special off-site visit to the sculpture studio to judge large or complex assemblages too difficult for transport. As always, the gallery reserves the right not to accept any art work deemed sexually explicit or that includes inappropriate text. Please observe the following:

FIVE (5) WORKS OF ART SHOULD BE SUBMITTED PER STUDENT!
TWO OF THESE WORKS MUST BE SUBMITTED IN YOUR MAJOR.
(FRESHMEN: OF THE WORKS SUBMITTED, ONLY ONE WORK IN YOUR CONCENTRATION SHOULD BE SUBMITTED)

SUBMISSION DATES:
All works should be submitted beginning Monday, January 11 – Monday, February 1, 2016 Friday, January 22, 2016 to the Gallery of Art between 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. These works must be accepted by Mr. Scott Baker or Ms. Eileen Johnston (works cannot be left in the gallery without being signed in; if they are, the gallery is not responsible). There will be no exceptions to these guidelines – and tardy work will not be juried. Please note that works cannot be submitted by your professors – only by You the Artist!

All required forms will be disseminated by the gallery. Exhibition labels must be completed and attached (taped) to the back of each work for proper labeling. Required forms must be completed and submitted to the Gallery staff.

JURYING PROCESS:

Works will be juried at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 29, 2016. An artist/professional from the metropolitan community will be invited to serve as judge. Certificates will be given for all first and second place winners as well as an honorable mention category (graduate and undergraduate).

Works not selected for entry will be available for pickup on Monday and Tuesday, February 8 and 9, 2016. The gallery will not be responsible for storage of art works beyond this date. Also, works accepted, but needing additional matting and framing must be picked up on these dates, and returned to the gallery by close of business on Friday, February 5, 2016 ‘exhibition ready’

INSTALLATION PROCESS:

Installation begins on Monday, February 8 and will end on Thursday, February 11, 2016. Student participation is welcomed and encouraged.

Works will not be accepted during the installation process. No exceptions.
