Call for Entries - Across the Ages: An Alumni Exhibition
This Summer, Boyden Gallery will host Across the Ages, a special exhibition of alumni creative work. This juried exhibition will open over Alumni Weekend and run through mid-August, 2014. Boyden Gallery and the Office of Alumni Relations are teaming up to showcase diverse work that celebrates the artistic journeys and creative achievements of St. Mary’s graduates.
All SMCM alumni (any year, any major - including the Class of 2014) are eligible to submit creative work in any medium. This year, we are proud to have alumnae jurors, Jayme McLellan (Class of ‘94; Director of Civilian Art Projects, Washington DC) and Kate Pollasch (Class of ‘08; Development Research Assistant, Art Institute of Chicago). Please contact Cristin Cash, Director of Boyden Gallery, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (240) 895 - 4246 if you need additional information or clarification about eligible artwork, entrance fees or logistics.
We are very excited for Across the Ages: An Alumni Exhibition! We hope you will participate through submission of your creative work, financial support for the exhibition (contact the Office of Alumni Relations if interested), or mingling at the opening reception. The exhibition will be a wonderful opportunity to see alumni work and catch up with creative SMCM graduates.
Submissions are due on April 1, 2014, so there is plenty of time to gather, paint, photograph, illustrate and finish work that you would like to share with your community!
We look forward to seeing you in June!,
Director, Boyden Gallery
Director, Office of Alumni Relations
