2019 Vis Com Alumni Art Show Call for Entries

Ivy Tech Southern Indiana and the Pat Harrison Fine Arts + Design Gallery are proud to announce the call for entries of Visual Communications Alumni artwork. The theme for this show is “Make.” 

Eligibility: The exhibition is open to all creatives, 18 years and older, having graduated or transferred from the Visual Communication Program at Ivy Tech Sellersburg.

Media Accepted: All media accepted, including digital works, graphic design, photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, glass, ceramics, fiber art, and mixed media.

Size Limitations: Two-dimensional works must be no larger than 60” on any side, including the frame. Three-dimensional works must be no larger than 45” on any side and no greater than 70 lbs.

Submission Process: There will be no juror for this exhibition, so artists should submit actual works for inclusion in the exhibition. Ivy Tech Sellersburg reserves the right to withhold from the exhibition any work that is deemed dangerous, poorly presented or for failure to observe limitations. Please keep in mind this is a family-friendly venue and work that is deemed inappropriate for a general public viewership may be withheld from the exhibition.

Artists may submit up to three (3) original works. All 2D work must be matted and framed or come with instructions for alternative hanging. All 3D work must come with instructions for display (pedestal, floor, wall, etc.) 

Artwork must be accompanied by the entry form (received through email) secured to the entry with masking tape.

We cannot guarantee every piece submitted will be exhibited in the gallery. A slideshow of ALL works will be available for public viewing should there need to be space-related omissions. Should it be necessary, the exhibit will be hung “salon style” with multiple pieces sharing wall space in close proximity. All care and consideration will be given by the curatorial staff to best represent each artist and artwork submitted.

Delivery Requirements: Artists are responsible for delivery of artwork, ready to display.

  • All Entries Due to Ivy Tech Sellersburg:  April 25, 2019
