The Austin Peay State University
Department of Art + Design
53rd Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition

Eligibility:  Works must ??have been produced between January 2020 and March 2021 and not exhibited in previous juried student exhibitions at APSU.  To submit work, entrants must have been enrolled during the 2020-2021 academic years at Austin Peay State University.  All media are eligible for submission, but must be completed by the date of entry; no work may be changed or altered after entering. 

General Guidelines for Submitting Accepted Works to Gallery:
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 a frame, but proper wiring is required.
  • If works on paper are larger than 30"x40", they do not have to be matted or framed, but hanging methods must be approved by Michael Dickins, Gallery Director, and should be contacted immediately upon notification of acceptance.
  • Framing resources: The Framemaker (Clarksville), FrameItEasy.com (use this link and save 10%)
3D Entries: Accepted 3D works will be displayed on pedestals or per instructions (to the best of our ability).
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.
  • Please ensure that your file plays in a standard media player prior to submission. Files that do not play will not be included in the exhibition.
Liability and Insurance: Every precaution will be taken in the 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.

Photography: The Department of Art + Design reserves the right to photograph accepted artwork for promotional purposes. To uphold the integrity of the exhibition and the experience of the visitor, photographing artwork for portfolios during the exhibition is prohibited.  Photographs for portfolios must be taken before the artwork is submitted.

Sale of Artwork: The New Gallery and the Department of Art + Design do not handle sales of artwork. If your work is for sale, please let us know during the submission process.  If a visitor is interested in purchasing artwork, the Gallery will forward the patron's contact information to the artist so any transaction will be between the artist and patron. We will not reveal the contact information of the artist without expressed written consent from the artist. Any sold artwork will not be removed until after the exhibition has closed.

Pick-up of Work after Exhibit Closes:
An ArtCall.org ‘Claim Ticket’ is required for the pick-up of artwork.  ‘Claim Tickets’ can be found in the User Dashboard at ArtCall.org. Artists must pick up their work from The New Gallery beginning Thursday, April 29 from 10 am - 3 pm. and Friday, April 30 from 10 am - 3 pm.

  • Work not picked up by 3 pm on April 30 will be turned over to the Department of Art + Design for disposal.
