Call for Artists
The Pool Art Center Gallery reviews portfolios on a regular basis. If you are an artist or curator interested in exhibiting work in either of our galleries please send a PDF portfolio, no larger than 8MB, to Professor Rebecca Miller at the link below. The portfolio should include 10-20 examples of work, artist statement(s), exhibition proposal, and resume of exhibition history.
This is no deadline for these submissions and portfolios will be reviewed throughout the year.
Say Their Names: Black Lives Matter
National Juried Exhibition
Say Their Names: Black Lives Matter will be a twofold exhibition. We invite artists to submit photographs of the Black Lives Matter protests that have taken place across the United States (and beyond). The show seeks to highlight citizens who have taken to the streets to peacefully protest violence and racism against people of color. In addition to documentary photographs of BLM protests, we invite artists to submit works created in honor of specific individuals who have been brutalized or killed because of racism (throughout history). Areas of the gallery will be devoted to memorials of these individuals. The BLM protest photographs will be exhibited in between the memorials. Accepted artists to the show will be invited to donate a work that will be auctioned with 100% of proceeds going to Drury scholarships for African American students. Accepted artists will not be required to donate works to be part of the show, it is purely voluntary in nature.
There is no fee to enter this exhibition.
About the Pool Art Center Gallery
The Pool Art Center Gallery is located on the first floor of the Pool Art Center, 940 N. Clay Avenue (on the east side of campus across from Harrison Stadium). The gallery features regional, national, and international artists who work with a variety of mediums and concepts. In May, the finale show of the season highlights Fine Art and Graphic & Digital Design majors by exhibiting their APEX senior projects in the gallery and surrounding areas of the building.
The gallery is free and open to the public. Due to the large amount of events and galleries open on the first Friday of every month we have changed our opening reception hours to 4 - 7 p.m. this year. The gallery will also be open Monday through Fridays, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Thursdays from 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. to view the various exhibitions.
