Call for Submittals
The Burrison Gallery is calling for artwork submittals to be considered for its first annual University Club Alumni Exhibit. Any member of the Penn Alumni Community may submit work for consideration. This juried, group show will open with a reception during Arts and Culture at Homecoming, November 8, and will be on display in the Gallery from November 8 through December 20, 2013.
The purpose of this show is to highlight the creativity of Penn alumni and to provide a venue to share their work with the University community. In order to qualify for consideration, you must be a Penn alumna or alumnus when your submittal package is received.
Submittal packages will include 1) a completed application form (www.business-services.upenn.edu/universityclub/burrison.shtml) and 2) up to three digital images of individual works of art on a CD or DVD, or you may send a link to any online photo repository (i.e. Picasa, Flickr, etc). Works of art must be two dimensional—paintings, drawings, photography, prints, fabric pieces, etc. The deadline for submission of the package is Friday, April 30, 2013. Selected artists will be notified by May 31, 2013.
The Burrison Gallery is an entity of the University Club, a private club for faculty, staff, as well as associate members, including post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and alumni at the University of Pennsylvania. The Burrison Gallery provides a venue for artists in the University community. Maurice Burrison’s vision was to encourage artistic freedom. His legacy continues as the Burrison Gallery emphasizes the role of art and culture in strengthening collaborative relationships across the University.
