Mayfest Seeks Collegiate Artists
Tulsa International Mayfest is seeking entries from area college students to participate in the Mayfest Exhibition of College Artists. The visual arts exhibition will be held in the Park Centre lobby from May 14-17.
This year’s show is “The Urban Landscape,” which was chosen for its focus on Tulsa’s growing recognition of a strong core, an embracing of urbanity, and the way that Tulsa’s creative class views that space. Interpretations of this theme are left up to the artist. Submissions are due on April 7, 2009. Artists may submit works in the following mediums: ceramics, clay, digital art, drawing, fiber, glass, graphics/printmaking, metal, mixed media, painting, pastel, photography, sculpture and wood.
All artists submitting work must be currently enrolled as an undergraduate student of a Tulsa area college or university. All artwork submissions should be made via email, one image per email. Put “Mayfest College Gallery Submission” as the subject and provide artist name, phone number, email, title, media and price (if applicable) in the body of the email with each submission. Send to email@example.com. Limit submissions to two works. Artists whose work is selected will be notified by email by April 24.
