Student artists can participate in Student Art in the Library, a juried exhibition that showcases only student art
Student artists are invited to submit their works to Student Art in the Library, a juried exhibition open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Two Student Art in the Library exhibits are held each year, one during the fall semester and one in the spring. This is the third call for submissions to the competition. Artworks are displayed in the Reference room of Hodges Library.
Students do not need to be art majors to submit, but the works must be two-dimensional. “We’ve had a wide range of art works displayed, including photography, oil painting, architectural drawings, ink drawings, lithographs and screenprinting,” Jennifer Beals, art and architecture librarian and exhibit coordinator, said.
Exhibit jurors examine submissions for quality, and try to choose pieces that work well together while representing a wide range of artistic styles and genres.
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 20th, 2006. Submission details are available at the Student Art in the Library website.
The jury will review submissions and artists will be notified of their selections by May 2, 2006.
