Wallace State Community College in Hanceville will host a Juried Visual Arts Exhibition April 1-13, 2013, as part of its annual Arts in April celebration. Entries may be submitted at the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts during normal Wallace State office hours weekdays through March 15.
The theme for this year’s exhibition is “Spring Folly” celebrates the wonder, joy and fun that is springtime. Artists are invited to submit their work in one or more of the following categories: drawing, painting, photography, ceramics/sculpture, and computer art. Entries will be judged in five age divisions: kindergarten through second grade, third through fifth grade, sixth through eighth grade, ninth through twelfth grade, and adult. Whether the approach is simple or complex, entries will be judged primarily on how well the artist uses his or her artistic vision to explore and present the work. Younger artists are invited to draw and color Roary, the Wallace State Lion Mascot, and his surroundings on the attached coloring sheet, “Roary’s Spring Day.” Coloring sheet entries will be featured in a non-juried showcase.
Eligible artists are current WSCC students, employees, school-aged children (public school and home-schooled children), and adults in the WSCC service area. Each artist may individually submit a total of two artworks from any of the five categories listed above.
Only original works of art will be accepted. Each entry must be the work of only one individual. Assistance from teachers, parents, mentors, or friends is not encouraged.
All entries should be ready and suitable for display when submitted. Two dimensional artworks (drawings, paintings, photographs, or graphic prints) must be matted and/or framed to be accepted. “Roary’s Spring Day” coloring sheets do not have to be matted or framed. Clay or ceramic artworks must be kiln-fired. Sculptures must be made only of durable material and mounted on bases for presentation.
