The SCAD exhibitions department and SCAD Art Sales invites SCAD students, professors, staff and alumni to submit entries for the 2018 summer sales exhibition “FIGURE/GROUND”, on view at SCAD Savannah’s Gutstein Gallery from July 23, 2018 through September 1, 2018.
This exhibition will consider the many representations of the human body and its relative relationship with the environment. “FIGURE/GROUND” seeks works of art from many media that articulate the human figure and the environmental situations that affect, inform or influence its behavior. Alternative interpretations of the figure are encouraged, such as the digital substitute or the fractured body. Artists working in a variety of media and disciplines are welcomed to submit, including, but not limited to painting, photography, sculpture, fibers, video, animation, drawing and printmaking.
-Works in all media will be considered.
-Works must incorporate the concept of the human body in environments, whether those environments are interiors, exteriors, vast spaces, confined, real or imagined. Artists are encouraged to take varied and complex approaches to the theme.
The submission deadline is midnight on Friday June 22, but the SCAD Exhibitions jury may view submissions as they come in and some artists may receive early notification of acceptance.
All accepted works must be delivered ready to hang/install. Works on paper (including drawings, photo and printmaking) must be framed. All framing should look professional. "Glass with clips" and plastic craft store frames are not acceptable. SCAD Exhibitions reserves the right to reject work from the exhibit for poor presentation and quality issues.
Accepted works may also be included on the SCAD Art Sales website (scadartsales.com) for the duration of the exhibition at the discretion of SCAD Art Sales staff.
All work must be for sale. Please limit submissions to 5 works by a single artist and in the case of multiple entries, SCAD Exhibitions encourages a concise body of work. Artwork in all mediums will be considered.
Multiple entries require multiple submission forms.
Example: An artist submitting 5 artworks will have to go through the online submission process 5 times.
If an artist's work is accepted, they will receive a consignment form and new vendor paperwork via email. Artwork must be dropped off June 4 – July 2. Drop off location is 102 East Lathrop Avenue, Savannah, GA 31401. Artists must schedule their drop-off time with Michael Runnels at firstname.lastname@example.org.
