5th Annual Juried Exhibition

February 6 - 24, 2017 | Littman Gallery

Reception: Wednesday, February 8, 2017 | 6 - 8pm

Submission to an art exhibition involves a self-editorial process. An artist is called upon to survey their recent works, and ultimately, to decide what stays and what goes. The process of selection by the artist is an act of curation that will impact their own selection by the exhibition curators. For students, this self-editorial act can be as educational as the work itself.

The Littman Gallery is pleased to present its 5th Annual Juried Exhibition. Every year, the Littman staff extends an invitation to the students of Portland State to submit completed works that they feel best represents their art practice. For each juried exhibition, the Littman Gallery’s curatorial staff invites art professionals from outside the PSU community to collaborate on selecting works to be included in the annual exhibition.

Enrolled Portland State University students of any major may enter submissions for juried consideration. Students may submit examples of their work, along with an artist + exhibition statement, to submit dot lw at gmail dot com, with the subject 5TH ANNUAL JURIED EXHIBITION. Submissions will be accepted through 11:59 pm Wednesday, January 25.
