Student Artwork to be Showcased in the Libraries

Students can feature artwork in juried exhibition

UT Libraries invites all current graduate and undergraduate students to promote the cultural diversity and creative expression of our campus by submitting their artwork for the libraries’ first Student Art in the Library juried exhibition. Selected artwork will be exhibited in the Hodges Library Reference room each fall and spring semester.

The exhibit will “give students an opportunity to exhibit their artwork in a professional venue,” Jennifer Beals, Art and Architecture Librarian, said. The displayed works will also help make Hodges Library more visually appealing.

Only two-dimensional works–including drawing, graphic design, printmaking, photography, ceramics or painting–may be entered in the call for submissions. Both undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at UT may submit entries, and registrants must provide an image of the completed work they hope to exhibit. Students do not have to be art majors, but they must have submission forms and at least one digital image of the piece must be received no later than April 11, 2005, for the fall display.

Submitted art will be selected by a reviewing committee, and winners will be notified by April 25, 2005. Artwork selected in the spring will be installed in the Hodges Library Reference room in the summer and remain on view throughout the Fall 2005 semester.

“Hodges Library serves as a center for learning and cultural enrichment for the University of Tennessee community,” Beals said. “The exhibition area in the Reference room creates an area of visual interest, encourages artistic appreciation and provides a venue for our students to display their artwork.”
