Submissions sought for Charter Day art contest

The William & Mary student community is invited to submit their creative works for the Charter Day juried art show. The theme is, "There is only one William & Mary."

New to the 2010 competition is the submission of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of art. Two-dimensional art may include but is not limited to drawings, paintings, illustrations and photography. The images should be no larger than 8.5 by 11 inches, horizontal or vertical.

Last year's winning entry was submitted by Andrew Paulette '09.The winner of the two-dimensional entries will see his or her artwork on the cover of the Charter Day programs. Last year, Andrew Paulette ‘09, a studio art major, won with his water color of the Wren weather vane.

Three-dimensional pieces are encouraged, along with video and music submissions. The winners of both the 2-D and 3-D categories may have their original pieces acquired by the President's Art Collection for a modest purchase price.  All the artwork will be showcased to the William & Mary community and judged by a jury composed of members of the Department of Art and Art History, the Muscarelle Museum, the Office of Publications and the Office of the President.

Pieces will be judged on their unique interpretation of this year's theme.

For artwork to be considered, it must be submitted to the art and art history office (Andrews 208) by Oct. 30. The winners will be announced shortly following Thanksgiving break.
