TRAC’s Second Annual Juried Exhibit

SUBMIT YOUR ART!
to The Rowan Arts Collective Second Annual Juried Exhibit

The Rowan Arts Collective will be holding our annual exhibition of Rowan University student artwork. All Rowan University students may submit up to two (2) works of visual art (2D or 3D) that were created either in or outside of class for consideration by our professional juror with no submission fee. Once we have all works submitted by the deadline, we will have our juror decide which works to include in the exhibit and choose three specific works to be awarded the titles of Best In Show, Runner Up, and Second Runner Up, each with their own corresponding prize to be awarded by The Rowan Arts Collective. The exhibit will be held in the Chamberlain Student Center Room 221 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 9th from 7:00 p.m.  to 10:30 p.m.  This is a great opportunity for Rowan students to have their works critiqued by a professional artist and possibly have that work displayed in an exhibition.

Submission Deadline: March 27th
