Looking for an opportunity to showcase your artistic talent? The California State University, Northridge Department of Art and the Art Galleries are asking all interested students to submit their artwork from March 27 to 29 between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Art Gallery lobby to be considered for the Annual Juried Art Student Exhibition.

CSUN students, both undergraduate and graduate, can submit up to three artwork pieces created within the last year. The exhibition, which will run from April 15 to May 4, will include a broad range of works representing the various disciplines: painting, sculpture, animation, video, web design, photography, drawing, printmaking, graphic design, textiles, ceramics and mixed media.

“Students have three days to submit work in which they will come into the Art Gallery, drop off their art and fill out the necessary paperwork,” said Jim Sweeters, director of the Art Galleries.

Following the submission days, three art experts from outside the university will serve as “jurors” and judge the entries. They will select between 75 and 100 art pieces to display as part of the exhibition.

Cash awards will be provided by the CSUN Arts Council and presented to students at the opening reception on April 19 between 7 to 9 p.m. in the Art Gallery. Among the awards received are Best of Show, Honorable Mention and the Dean’s Award.

“The dean’s award recipient’s work becomes part of the University Foundation Art Collection which will be displayed in the dean’s office for a year,” Sweeters said. “The department looks forward to this for students because it gives them a chance to show and compare their work with other students.”
