Fall 2021

State of the Arts Exhibition
Oct. 12 – Nov. 2, 2021

Submissions Closed

We are thrilled to bring the State of the Arts Mentor/Mentee exhibition back in-person this year.

Ohio University's juried exhibition is open to all high school art educators currently teaching visual arts in Ohio and the surrounding region. Submissions are juried by School of Art + Design Gallery Coordinator and faculty. This year we will not be collecting an entry fee and therefore will not be giving out the customary monetary awards.

Selected artists will also have the opportunity to showcase one of their best students to represent your high school together, in this juried exhibit at the Ohio University Art Gallery, on view October 12 – November 2, 2021, in Athens, Ohio.
