Student Show Presentation Requirements

Congrats to all who were accepted to the 2015 Student Exhibition! 

Students need to deliver accepted work to Pease Gallery no later than Monday, March 9 at noon. If you miss this deadline, your work will be excluded from the show.

All work must be ready to hang—2-D work such as drawings and photography should be framed and wired. Paintings should be framed or gallery wrapped.

If your work does not meet the presentation requirements of the gallery, it may be excluded from the show. It doesn’t have to be expensively framed to look good. Simple mats and frames allow the work to take center stage.

If you need assistance with presentation, please contact your instructor, or you may contact Carolyn.Jacobs@cpcc.edu.  Carolyn will be available on Thursday morning and intermittently on Friday to assist you.
