54th Annual Student Juried Art Exhibition
This competitive juried show honors the Department of Art + Design's outstanding student
artists for their hard work and creativity. The show is professionally juried from
outside Austin Peay State University, emulating the practice of real-world art shows.
The exhibition showcases the array of artwork produced by students during the past
academic 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: the 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.
Professional presentation of artwork is critical for an exhibition. The New 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).
2D Entries: Accepted works on paper (photography, drawings, prints, graphic design) must be framed and behind plexiglass - not glass - and have wire securely attached to the back of the piece. Paintings can be displayed without frame, but proper wiring is required.
3D Entries: Accepted 3D works will be displayed on pedestals or per instructions (to the best of our ability). Please contact Michael Dickins, Gallery Director, immediately upon notification of acceptance with any instructions.
Video and Time-based Media: Accepted time-based media should be submitted as a .mov/.mp4 (encoded with H.264/AVC, VC1, and MPEG1/2/4, up to 1920x1080, 30fps, 10mbps) file on a dedicated thumb drive.
ArtCall.org entry receipt: All accepted works brought to the gallery MUST be submitted with the ‘Submission Back Label’ attached/with each piece. Receipts can be found in the User Dashboard at ArtCall.org.
Liability and Insurance: Every precaution will be taken in handling and display of artwork. Work will be
insured while in The New Gallery under APSU's umbrella insurance policy. Exhibition
participants must refrain from touching their own or anyone else's artwork.
Drop off of accepted artwork:
Artwork must be delivered to The New Gallery March 28-30 between 10am-3pm. For special
