Call for Entries: High School Student Art Show | Deadline Extended to Thursday, February 25
The Marion Art Center announces a call for entries for its upcoming exhibit featuring work by local high school students. The show is part of the MAC’s Young Artist Program. Any student of high school age may submit up to five pieces for consideration. The MAC exhibition committee will review all works and select at least one piece from each applicant. Students may submit work made in school, but the MAC encourages students to make new work -- and priority will be given to those works -- responding to the following theme:
Life in 2021: What Comes Next?
Everyone has experienced challenges throughout the past year, some more so than others. Our lives have been upheaved in a way we could never have imagined due to the coronavirus pandemic. Many of us have also been affected by the turmoil surrounding race, identity, and politics. The way we interact with others is vastly different than it used to be, and our understanding of the world and our future is in a constant state of flux. Whether we have been changed emotionally, if important life plans have stalled, we all find ourselves in a different state of being.
What comes next? What does your life look like after the pandemic is behind us? Are there moments you wish to reflect on? What experiences - which can be simple but meaningful - are you eager to enjoy again? What do you look forward to when you think of your daily life in the relatively near, pandemic-free future?
To apply, students should email the following information and documents to [email protected] with “High School Art Show” in the subject line. Alternatively, students may upload all documents through the form provided below. All submissions are due no later than Thursday, February 25.
- Full name, email address, and phone number. Age, grade.
- Up to five high-quality jpg images labeled in the following format: LastFirst01_Title (ex: SmithJohn03_HarborView)
Note: If sending multiple images is limited by file size, applicants should send a zip file or use online form
- Short bio and brief artist statement - no more than a few paragraphs (or short statements about individual pieces/body of work submitted)
- Corresponding image list with titles, dates, media, dimensions, and pricing (if applicable). Students should indicate what, if any, work was made for a specific class assignment. Students should list works for sale by including pricing with inventory list, or indicate not for sale by writing NFS. The MAC retains a 40% commission on any sold works.
Bio/statement and image list should be uploaded through the form as a single PDF file. If sending information via email, a single Word document will also be accepted.
The exhibit runs Friday, March 5 - Thursday, April 15. All works must be prepared for installation. The MAC will accept matted works for this show if framing is not an option. Students should use a neutral mat color (white, off-white, grey, black, etc.) for a cohesive presentation. Three-dimensional works will also be accepted.
The exhibition committee will review and select works, and artists will be notified in the order applications are received. Drop off dates for work are scheduled Friday, Feb. 26, Saturday, Feb. 27, and Tuesday, March 2 by appointment only. There will be a virtual reception for the exhibit, date and time TBD.
