Every year in the spring the Karl Drerup Art Gallery hosts an exhibition of the best art work produced by PSU students during the past year. All students, whether art major or not will be eligible to submit up to 3 works to be juried for this exhibition held March 24 – April 11.

There are two jurors this year: Sarah Chaffee of McGowan Gallery in Concord and Deborah Mahar, visual artist and educator.

Works produced in all media are encouraged to be represented. This includes Graphic Design, Photography, Ceramics, Sculpture, Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Video and what might be termed Mixed Media. There is no stylistic or thematic restriction on your creative efforts, the quality of your work is the only criteria. There will be 4 levels considered which correspond to the levels the curriculum course [courses listed below] which you are enrolled in. Your work will be judged in comparison to other work on the same level. For example, a first year level student’s work will not be compared to those from a senior level. In addition, there will be a fifth level that will allow you to submit independent work, created outside of the existing course structures, and a sixth level for non art majors. Only 15 pieces per level will be accepted into the exhibit for a total of 75 pieces. There will be five prizes for each of the “Best in Level” works and one prize for the overall “Best in Show.”
