Students can submit their work to a juried exhibition
Student artists have a new opportunity to show off their works–the University Libraries are sponsoring “Student Art in the Library,” a juried exhibition that will showcase only student art.
“This is a great opportunity for students to exhibit their artwork in a professional venue,” Jennifer Beals, Art and Architecture Librarian, said. Students who are interested in pursuing graduate work or professional positions in the arts need exhibit experience in their resumes, Beals continued.
Students do not have to be art majors to submit, but the works must be two-dimensional. “We hope to display a variety of genres,” Beals said, “like drawing, graphic design, printmaking, photography, ceramics, painting, architectural drawing, costume design–I think the possibilities are quite varied.”
Students must be enrolled graduates or undergraduates and need to submit at least one digital image of their work along with the submission form. Submissions need to be received no later than midnight on April 11, 2005, to be considered for the fall display.
A committee will review submissions, and artists will be notified of their selections by April 25. The selected artwork will be installed in the exhibit space this summer and will remain on view throughout the Fall 2005 semester.
