The Cloyde Snook Gallery at the Art Department, Adams State University, seeks artwork in all media for a national juried exhibition. For “Atypical Topographies: exploring new approaches to landscape” we seek artworks that challenge, reinvent, or chart new directions in the concepts related to landscape art. 

All artists 18 years of age and older residing in the United States may enter.

All media except installation will be considered. Work must be original and completed within the last two years. Shipped work must conform to UPS restrictions for size and weight: 130” girth plus length (crated) and 150 lbs. (crated). Accepted 2d artwork must be properly framed with plexi-glass or prepared for exhibition. No glass will be permitted on 2d artwork.

“Best in Show” will be offered a future solo exhibition at the Cloyde Snook Gallery.

Artists may submit up to 3 images for review by the jurors. Entries must be received by August 14, 2016. The Cloyde Snook Gallery reserves the right to reject any works which substantially depart from or were poorly represented by the submission.

Artists will be notified of acceptance or non-acceptance by Monday, August 22, 2016 by email.  Information on drop off / shipping will be sent to those accepted.

Accepted works will be insured while on the university premises. Works in transit or those left at ASU after Oct. 31, 2016 will not be covered. Artists are responsible for round trip shipping cost. A prepaid return shipping label via UPS or FedEx must be enclosed. In situations where this is impossible, other arrangements must be made in advance with the Cloyde Snook Gallery. The  Gallery will retain any works for which shipping or pick-up arrangements have not been made prior to the exhibition.

All proceeds from works sold will go directly to the artist. The gallery will take no commission on sales but does encourage donations of 10 to 20%. The artist grants Cloyde Snook Gallery permission to reproduce accepted entries in publications and media for educational and publicity purposes. Entering this competition constitutes agreement with all conditions herein.
