Summer Alumni Art Show call for submissions

The Kishwaukee College Art Gallery and the 50th Anniversary Committee will be hosting an Alumni Art Show this summer and are requesting all interested Kish alum to submit works for possible inclusion. The Alumni Art Show will run July 19 – August 30 in the Kishwaukee College Art Gallery.

The Gallery and Committee would like to include as many alumni artists as possible in this group show and ask that artists limit their submission to 10 pieces. The deadline for submissions is June 28 and all art work selected for inclusion would need to be delivered to campus by July 12.

The Alumni Art Show will open the evening of the 50th Anniversary Fragments of Kish Wine Walk at the College on July 19 from 4:30 – 7:00p.m. Viewing the exhibition will be included in the Wine Walk itinerary.

There will also be a Closing Reception on August 29, noon—3:00p.m. in the Art Gallery. The Wine Walk is a ticketed event; tickets will be available on June 1. The Closing Reception on August 29 will be free and open to the general public.   

The Gallery and 50th Anniversary Committee are hoping to showcase alumni who are both emerging and established artists in a variety of media and focus on bringing diverse, local, and reminiscent experiences to the campus in celebration of 50 years of Pride, Passion, and Purpose at Kishwaukee College.

Alumni artists may submit links to Dropbox or Google Drive, or other online image galleries that can supply information and images about the proposed works for exhibition. An online submission form for digital submissions may be found at www.kish.edu/alumniartshow.

Digital submissions are preferred, but hard copy proposals or supplemental information will be accepted and can be sent to: Kishwaukee College, 21193 Malta Rd., Malta, IL 60150; Attention: Jaime Long.
