Juried Student Exhibition Submission Guidelines and Criteria



2016 Juried Student Exhibit and President’s Juried Exhibit

COMBINED PROCESS AND a NEW timing for 2016!

This year ALL STUDENTS will be able to submit to both the Juried Student Exhibit (hosted and coordinated by KDAG) and the Annual President’s Juried Exhibit (coordinated by Tom Driscoll, with works on display in Speare).

Artwork that is not selected for these two juried exhibits will be shown by the Student Art Collective in a “Salon des Refuses” exhibit in the Collins Gallery. All exhibits offer students an opportunity to share their work with the wider PSU campus.

The submission deadline is BEFORE Christmas break!!

Artworks from Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 semesters are eligible, so when you go home for Thanksgiving, bring back your favorite work from Spring!!




Here’s how it will work:

  • On the form, you will be able to check the boxes, choosing to have your work submitted to one, two, or all three exhibits (we strongly recommend ALL THREE!).
  • Since we have combined the process of JSE and the PJE we can accept up to 5 works per student.


Artwork drop off: 

December 14-18

10am-12pm each day in KDAG or by appointment

You must drop off the piece even if you have uploaded an image to the online form.

(during finals week, so drop off after you have had your final crit!!)

  • Outside jurors will be selecting works for the KDAG Juried Student exhibit, PSU Administration will select for the President’s Juried exhibit.
  • The Juried Student Exhibit includes levels from beginners to advanced students, with maximum of 15 works per level accepted. There are awards for best in each level, and an award for Best in Show.
  • Jurying will take place during break, and you will be notified via email if your work has been accepted by either exhibit.
