Call for Entries for Juried Art Exhibition at Delaware County Community College
(Delaware and Chester Counties, PA - July 13, 2023)—The Call for Entries is open for the Gallery at Delaware County Community College’s 215/610 CONTEMPORARY Juried Exhibition, an annual exhibition that features the work of emerging artists living and working in and around the Philadelphia region.
The 2023 exhibition will be presented in the College Art Gallery (901 South Media Line Road, Media, Pa. 19063) from November 13 through December 15, 2023. It will be juried by artist and educator Mark Thomas Gibson, a Philadelphia-based visual artist working in drawing, painting, print and sculpture, who has most recently been awarded a 2022 Guggenheim Fellowship and a Louis Comfort Tiffany Biennial Grant.
The purpose of the juried exhibition is to showcase local emerging contemporary artists, to create a platform for critical discourse through an exchange of ideas, and to push the boundaries of an age-old practice. During the exhibition, at a date to be announced, Gibson will lecture about his personal work and practice. It is open to artists residing in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, and there is a $15 non-refundable entry fee. Of the accepted artists, four will be chosen to receive monetary awards, which include $400 for Juror’s Choice, $300 for First Place, $200 for Second Place, and $100 for Third Place.
The deadline to apply for the 215|610 CONTEMPORARY Juried Exhibition is Monday, September 18, 2023 at 5 p.m. EST. More information, including how to submit work for consideration, can be found at this link or at dccc.edu/215610.
