Please read this page carefully before filling out the entry form below and tagging your work. See your instructor for additional help in preparing work. Artwork that is not ready to hang, that falls apart, or has incomplete entry tags will not be displayed.

Eligibility

This exhibition is open to students who enrolled in KCC art classes. Students may submit up to two works (a diptych is considered one work) per class that were completed for class credit. Eligible artworks are those which were not shown in previous KCC art shows and were completed in Spring and Fall 2016 and/or Spring 2017.

Specifications

All two-dimensional art work must be ready to hang.

Paintings must have screw eyes and a picture hanging wire attached to the back, no saw tooth hangers. Please do not attach wire or string with tape.

Drawings, 2-D designs and photography must be mounted on a backing, matted and/or framed. No drawings will be accepted without mats. If you don't frame the work and just mat it, you can shrink wrap artwork if you want to protect it. If your artwork has no frame and only a mat, it will be displayed with T-pins on the free standing walls. Our gallery only accepts Plexiglas for protection over drawings and two-dimensional work. No glass is allowed.

Three-dimensional entries are encouraged, with glass cases available for small works and floor pedestals for larger pieces. All three-dimensional work must be solidly constructed. (see 3-D instructors for questions.) Any work which falls apart will not be included in the show.

Tagging

All works submitted must be tagged. Please attach a printed copy of the completed entry form, available below, to the backside, upper right corner of all flatwork and to the bottom of or attached with a string to three-dimensional works.

Liability

The vast majority of students participating in this exhibition do not have an established 
market price for their work (obtained by actively selling) and cannot, therefore, expect insurance coverage for their work, except for the cost of materials.

The gallery will not assume liability for loss or damage of entries while in transit. Cost of works stolen or vandalized will be assumed by the gallery (recovery cost will be limited to 
materials only). Every reasonable precaution and care will be taken in handling and protecting entries while present on the KCC campus.

Entry forms must be submitted electronically

Use this fillable online entry form to print your artwork's tags. In addition to printing out a completed entry form and attaching it to your artwork, you must submit your entry form electronically.
