ENTRIES:
Each student may submit up to three original works in the medium of his/her choice. Work of a fragile nature is submitted at the artist's risk. Entries should be submitted ready for display. Two-dimensional work should be properly stretched, framed, matted or mounted with backing. All submissions that do not meet these requirements will be considered at the discretion of the juror. Matted work must be securely mounted with mats attached to work. Loose glass or Plexi may accompany work for L-pin installation. Wet paintings or sculpture will not be accepted. Diptychs and triptychs will be judged intact: individual parts will not be accepted without the inclusion of the other(s). Charcoal and pastel drawings must be spray-fixed to prevent transfer. Backs of works must be completely clean.

ENTRY FORMS:
Will be available in the gallery at time of drop off. They must be filled out and submitted to gallery assistant.

LABELS:
Labels are to be securely attached to the upper left hand corner of the back of each work. Labels should be clearly visible on three-dimensional work. Please use labels attached (also available in Schick Art Gallery). Entry forms (in gallery) are to be filled out when work is submitted.

AWARDS:
Over $1000 in awards and gift certificates will be awarded by the juror for outstanding work and will be announced at the opening.

PLEASE NOTE:
All work is submitted at the risk of the student. The Schick Art Gallery will take every reasonable precaution and care against loss, destruction or vandalism, but cannot insure works submitted for judging. Works that are selected for exhibition will be insured for the duration of the exhibit. Insurance value must be indicated on the label provided; value of each work cannot exceed $300.
