February 2018 Exhibition:

“Raw: The Exhibition”


“Raw” calls for any work which begs the question what is public vs. what is private, work that is auto-biographical in nature, work which functions as confessional, revelatory, cathartic. We are seeking a divulgence, unbosoming, or unburdening; that which you have always wanted to say, to share, to let go.


GALLERY: The Indiana University Kokomo Art Gallery is located on the IU Kokomo campus. The gallery displays artwork by local, regional, national, and international artists throughout the year. Our 2018 Intern, Mary Ade, will curate this show.


ELIGIBILITY: The exhibit is open to all artists who are at least 18 years of age. All fine art media are accepted including: painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, glass, prints, photography, collage, graphics, pastels, video, and mixed media. All entries must be original and created within the last two years. The artwork must be no larger than 60” in width measured horizontally. Sculptures should not exceed 11 ft. in height due to gallery space. All work must be accurately represented in jpeg images. Work not meeting these criteria will not be exhibited.


PRESENTATION: Professional presentation of each piece is required. 2D artwork must be framed and have a secure way to hang the piece. For canvases, the sides and all staples must be covered. Sculptures should be fully assembled and structurally sound and include detailed installation instructions, if necessary. Entry: All entries can be submitted to under “Raw: The Exhibition.”

All entries will be chosen from high resolution (300dpi) jpeg images. A maximum of 4 pieces can be entered per artist. The gallery reserves the right to reproduce images accepted into the show for promoting and archiving the exhibition. Please include a title and medium for each work.


DELIVERY & PICK-UP: Delivery and pick-up of the artwork will be the responsibility of the artist. The artist may choose to either personally drop-off and pick-up the work during gallery hours or ship their work to the gallery. If the artist chooses to ship their artwork, then they are responsible for the return shipping, as well as, using a sturdy, reusable package. Any work not picked up 30 days after the end of the show will become property of the IU Kokomo Art Gallery.


SALES: Sales are encouraged. The gallery will retain 30% of all sales, giving the artist 70%. Artists will be paid within 30 days from the close of the exhibition on work that is sold. Any work not for sale needs to be indicated by NFS (not for sale) and an insurance value not exceeding fair market value must be included on the entry form. All work will be insured by the gallery at declared value for the duration of the show.
