The Austin Peay State University
Department of Art + Design
52nd  Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition

Eligibility:  Works must have been produced between January 2019 and March 2020 and not exhibited in previous juried student exhibitions at APSU.  To submit work, entrants must have been enrolled during the 2019-2020 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.  Once accepted, no work may be removed during the show for any reason.

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.
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 an .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 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 APSU ID is required for pick-up of artwork.  Only the artist or persons with a signed authorization from the artist and the artist's APSU ID may claim work. Artists must pick up their work from The New Gallery beginning Thursday, April 30 from 10 am - 3 pm. and Friday, May 1 from 10 am - 3 pm.

  • Work not picked up by 3 pm on May 1 will be turned over to the Department of Art + Design for disposal.
