January 20, 2016

NWIOSU Art Society Art Show posterEntry deadline for the 13th annual Northwestern Oklahoma State University Art Society (NAS) Art Show is Feb. 24.

A few new categories have been added to this year’s show, which will take place March 6-26 in the J.W. Martin Library on the Alva campus. Entries are open to all Northwestern students, employees, retired employees and alumni.

An online entry form is available at www.nwosu.edu/art-show-form. Paper forms also are available at that link for those who prefer to fill out the entry form by hand. Rules and specifications, as well as category descriptions also are available at this link.

Northwestern students will be able to win prize money if their art piece places within a category or division.

“Members of the art society work hard each year to raise the necessary funds for this art show,” Angelia Case, NAS sponsor, said. “On average, the club must raise close to $1,200 to provide prize money, buy ribbons, make posters and for other miscellaneous costs. The total amount needed for prize money alone for our student winners is about $850.”

A breakdown of prize money for students includes the following:

  • One Best of Show: $75 and ribbon (chosen from the three divisions winners)
  • Three Division winners: $50 each and ribbon (chosen from the first place winners within each division)
  • 25 Category winners: 1st-$15; 2nd-$5; 3rd-$2 each with ribbons (all places may not be awarded pending judge’s discretion)
  • One People’s Choice: $50 and ribbon (selected by patrons visiting show from among all entries submitted by students, alumni, employees, retirees)

Except for People’s Choice, Northwestern employees, alumni and retirees will only receive ribbons for their winning artwork.

Categories within the Visual Arts Division will include Cartoon/Comics, Digital Art, Drawing, Mixed Media, Painting, Watercolor and 3-Dimensional/Sculpture.

The Artisan Crafts Division will include Crochet/Knitting/Needlework, Quilts, Jewelry, Pottery and a Wildcard category for entries that don’t fit anywhere else in this division.

The Photography Division will include Action, Animals, Black and White, Cityscapes, Landscapes, Light, Elements of Design, Macro, Northwestern Campus Life, People, Plants and a Wildcard category for entries that don’t fit anywhere else in this division.

A Special Photography Category is "13." It is open to interpretation but must depict the number 13 in some manner to help NAS celebrate the 13th annual art show.

All artwork must be delivered to the J.W. Martin Library on Wednesday, March 2.

The winning pieces from the campus art show will then be on display at the Runnymede Hotel in downtown Alva during the First Friday Artwalk on April 1 from 6 to 8 p.m.
