Current UNM students are invited to submit images for up to five works of 2 or 3-dimensional art (no more than 10 images) for an exhibition scheduled for Oct. 31, 2011 through March 9, 2012. Send images along with the other documentation noted below to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submission deadline is Sept. 30, 2011.
For each piece provide: An artist statement of 250 words or less, title, dimensions, medium, artist name, and complete contact information including major and status (for example, Studio art, Junior). Entries will be selected by Dr. Jonathan Wolfe (aka The Fractal Guy). Work must be "exhibition ready" and will be installed by the artists and juror Oct. 21 - 28. Works on paper must be framed or securely mounted. Stretched canvases do not need to be framed.
Our hanging system permits some flexibility in height and positioning of artwork. No additional hooks, nails, glue, or other fasteners can be attached to library walls. Please view our hanging system and ask about size limitations and technology requirements before submitting work to ensure we can accommodate your pieces.
The Library will take all reasonable precautions for the protection of artwork. Display cases are locked and have UV-protection. The artist exhibits work at his/her own risk, not holding University Libraries or UNM liable for damage to art due to theft, vandalism or natural disasters.
A reception hosted by the Library will be held for the selected artists on November 18, 2011, from 4-6 pm in the Fine Arts and Design Library.
For more information and questions e-mail email@example.com. This Call for Submissions is also posted on libguides.unm.edu/art and elibrary.unm.edu.
Fine Arts and Design Library staff members are pleased to further the creativity and innovation of aspiring UNM student artists by exhibiting student work during the academic year. Committee members are Judy Hansen, Susan Hessney-Moore and Nina Stephenson.
