NUMBER OF ENTRIES
Up to three original works
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 wet 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 these works must be completely clean and they should be submitted with a clean slip-sheet covering the work.
Each student entering work must fill out an entry and submit it to the gallery assistant when work is dropped off. Forms are available in the gallery or by download online at: (Entry)
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. Labels can be picked up at Schick Art Gallery.
Appx. $1000 in awards and gift certificates will be chosen by the juror for outstanding work and will be announced at the opening reception. These prizes are funded through donations made by friends of the gallery, campus organizations, and community businesses.
