Armstrong Gallery Submissions

The Annual Student Juried Art Exhibition


The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art at Georgia Southern University is proud of our students and wants to reward our outstanding student artists for their hard work and creativity. The Annual Student Juried Art Exhibition is professionally juried from outside Georgia Southern University, emulating the practice of real-world art shows. The exhibition showcases the best artwork produced by students during the past year and gives students the opportunity to participate in a professional exhibition where a qualified juror selects artwork and artistic merit awards.

Jury Process and Notification of Juror’s Decision:

The jurying process will be conducted with consideration for juror discretion and the following constraint: amount of physical space. Excessively large work or works in sets will decrease the total number of accepted works, thus they will be juried more stringently.

Your application must be completed and submitted online by the submission deadline. You may submit up to three images of artwork for review. Please note that image size and labeling are very important. Image files must be JPEG only, no larger than 1,000 pixels in height or width, and a resolution of 72 pixels per inch.

 

A maximum of three (3) works per student may be submitted for consideration. Title, date, size (H x W x D), and medium must be provided. All works must specify a price or be listed as Not for Sale (NFS), and an additional insurance value must also be provided. 

Artist Agreement:

Artist agreement upon entry: By completing & submitting the entry form, the entrant confirms that they have read the terms and conditions and agree to participate in accordance with these. The entrant also agrees that their artwork may be photographed and used in any promotional materials now or in the future and at the discretion of the Betty Foy Sanders of Art and Georgia Southern University.

Professional presentation of artwork is critical for exhibition.  The Armstrong Gallery reserves the right to refuse accepted work that is deemed unsafe, or otherwise unsuitable for handling (i.e., poorly constructed, poorly framed or environmentally hazardous).

 

All artwork must remain in the Gallery for the Duration of the exhibition.

Sales:

Artists exhibiting work are responsible for any works sold during the exhibition. The Armstrong Art Gallery will facilitate communication between potential buyers and the artist. The arrangement for payment to the artist and delivery to the buyer is the sole responsibility of the artist. The Armstrong Art Gallery takes no fee in the sale of work and takes no responsibility for the exchange between buyer and the artist. All artwork must remain in the Gallery for the Duration of the exhibition regardless of a sale.
