Call Type: Unspecified
State: North Carolina
Entry Deadline: 11/20/16
EXHIBITION: As part of an ongoing commitment to promote drawing practices in the visual arts, the University of North Carolina Asheville (UNC Asheville) invites artists to submit entries to a Juried International Exhibition of contemporary drawing. UNC Asheville seeks to examine drawing as it is practiced and defined by today’s artists. Such an exhibition will demonstrate the continued significance of drawing through both conventional and innovative methods. Accepted work will be exhibited in UNC Asheville’s S. Tucker Cooke Gallery from January 20, 2017 through February 17, 2017.
Esteemed juror, Scott Noel, will be present and open the exhibition with a lecture about his practice on January 20, 2017; an opening reception for Drawing Discourse will follow immediately after the lecture.
MEDIA: In effort to support the breadth in international contemporary drawing, media is open to any traditional or experimental drawing media including but not limited to two or three-dimensional works, video or installation.
AWARDS: $2000 in cash prizes, as chosen in person by the juror, will be awarded during the exhibition opening reception. This award amount has doubled this year due to the generous contribution from Professor Emeritus, S. Tucker Cooke.
