On Friday, April 8, the Art Department will host a distinguished outside juror to select works for the Fourth Annual Art Students’ Exhibition to be held at the Baron and Ellin Gordon Galleries. In addition, Art Department faculty will review the works and award a number of prestigious scholarships worth up to $2500 to outstanding studio art and art history students.
All students are eligible to compete for the student show. Scholarships are only available to students who intend to graduate in December 2011 or later. Students selected for Scholarships will automatically be included in the Exhibition.
To enter the Exhibition and/or Scholarship competition art studio students may bring up to five original works created in the last two years to the Gordon Gallery on Wednesday, April 6 or Thursday, April 7, 11:30–4:30. Also bring a completed application form and a pre-made 4×5 card with name and e-mail clearly printed along with an artist’s statement of no more than 100 words.
Art History students please submit your applications to Robert Wojtowicz electronically by Monday, April 4. Your applications will be reviewed by the art history and studio art faculty with the winner announced at the opening of the students exhibition.
