SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Works submitted should be previously unshown in the Gallery and produced while attending Howard University.

THREE (3) WORKS OF ART should be submitted per student.
AT LEAST ONE OF THESE MUST BE IN YOUR MAJOR.

All works must be submitted from Monday, January 9 – Friday, January 13, 2017 to the Gallery of Art between 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. All works must be accepted by Mr. Scott Baker or Ms. Eileen Johnston. Works cannot be left in the Gallery without being signed in by the Gallery staff. The Gallery is not responsible for works left without being signed in, and such works will be ineligible for inclusion. Tardy work will not be accepted and will not be juried.
All works must be submitted by the student artists. Professors cannot submit work on students’ behalf.

Exhibition Labels must be completed and attached (taped) to the back of each work for proper labeling.
Registration Form must be completed by the artist and submitted to the Gallery staff.

All submissions must be exhibition-ready for judging. Paintings should be framed or the edges of canvases painted if exposed. Hanging apparatus must be included in the correct position. Two-dimensional works should be matted and/or framed, also with appropriate hanging apparatus.

Art works in a series (size and number) will be reviewed, but acceptance might be limited due to 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. The juror will make a special off-site visit to the sculpture studio to judge large or complex assemblages too difficult for transport.

The Gallery reserves the right not to accept any artwork deemed sexually explicit or that includes inappropriate text.

There will be no exceptions to these guidelines.

JURYING & WINNERS

Works will be juried at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. 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).
