What will be accepted:

  • 2D and 3D artworks that fit the theme of Growth.

  • Installation pieces are also welcome- we just ask for details like dimensions, and how to install be very precise and easy to understand.

  • There are no size requirements for this show. Any extra large pieces just need to be able to fit through our standard sized front door. If you are concerned that your extra large piece might not fit, email Claire at [email protected] for exact dimensions. She will be happy to help!

  • Artwork must have been created in the last three years.

  • Please do not submit artwork that was created for an assignment. We want to see your ideas as an artist! Not what your teacher told you to make.
