Fall 2016 Juried Student Art Exhibition

Oct. 11- Nov. 10

ENTRY DEADLINE: MONDAY, SEPT. 26 @ 11:59PM

The Yavapai College Prescott Art Gallery supports the learning outcomes of the Fine Art, Graphic Design and Photography programs in their presenting of the Juried Student Art Exhibition. Expressive content, formal unity, and technical facility all contribute to the aesthetic achievement for each work of art. Juried exhibitions assess these qualities. Each semester the Juried Student Art Exhibition provides Yavapai College students with the opportunity to experience the submission and jury process, present their art in a professional fine art gallery and receive recognition for their accomplishments from professionals in the field and members of the Yavapai County community. As is the nature of a juried selection, not all pieces submitted will be chosen for the exhibition. Therefore you must be thoughtful and critical of your own selection. A faculty member’s signature will be required if your work is juried into the exhibition. So a review of your artwork and the digital images of your work with an art instructor is recommended.

Accepting Artwork

Dealing with the concept of “what is art?” can sometimes be confusing. An image that
one student considers art may be considered disturbing and objectionable by another. The Yavapai College Art Department encourages open minds and open discussions in its classes. If you find yourself confused about an image you wish to present or one that another student has presented, discuss your issues with you instructor. Together we can explore appropriate avenues of communication and resolution.
