Review/Acceptance Process

How to Apply for a Student Show

  1. Fill out an exhibition proposal online (see “Propose an Exhibition”).
  2. Wait for a response. Upon submission, your proposal will be reviewed by Jason Lanegan, the Gallery Director. If the proposal is accepted, you will receive an acceptance letter via email detailing the exhibition process. If requested locations or dates are unavailable, or if the proposal prompts any questions or concerns, the gallery director will contact you.
  3. Once your show proposal is accepted, obtain permission from your faculty advisor to exhibit your work. To do this, print out and complete the Display Clearance Form. Turn in this form to the gallery director on the day you are scheduled to set up your show. It is best to communicate with your faculty advisor throughout the entire exhibition process in order to avoid misunderstandings.

Please make sure physical addresses, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers stated on your exhibit proposal are current and correct. It is imperative that the gallery be able to contact you.

Other Shows

The following review process is used with shows that are NOT student or faculty shows. The Gallery Committee is responsible for review of proposals for exhibition in the department galleries. Typically the committee will convene once each quarter to review proposals for the following calendar year. The committee will evaluate each proposal based on the following criteria:

  1. Relevance to department academic programs and curricula
  2. Artistic merit of proposal
  3. Expense of proposed exhibit
  4. Compliance with Department Exhibition Guidelines

A letter of notification will be sent to the applicant upon completion of the review process. The committee will designate the exhibit space, dates, and budget for accepted proposals.

Every effort will be made to accommodate requested dates and venue.
