All works must be submitted by the student artists. Professors cannot submit work on students’ behalf.
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.
