West Gallery Exhibition Schedule

Spring Semester 2015

artist's toolsSixth Annual High School Teachers Art Exhibition
January 12 – 31, 2015

For the fifth year in a row, we will be inviting high school teachers this year to have artwork displayed during the run of our 18th Annual High School Student Art Invitational. As with last year, the 5th Annual High School Teacher Art Invitational will be on view in the West Gallery, which is off the Main Gallery lobby.

We will accept up to two works per school and one work per teacher. Based on previous year’s participation this will fill the West Gallery, perhaps hung salon style. The work should have been completed within the last three years (2011 -2014). Please adhere to the submittal requirements that are in place for your students. If your school is interested in selecting 2 teachers to represent your school, please fill out the teachers submittal form and either email or fax to the address or fax number below. Delivery and drop off dates are the same dates and times as your student’s works.
