University of North Carolina Asheville, International Call for Entries: 10th Annual Drawing Discourse Exhibition

Deadline: December 2nd, 2018  

Exhibition: As part of an ongoing commitment to promote drawing practices in the visual arts, the University of North Carolina Asheville (UNC Asheville) invites artists to submit entries to a Juried International Exhibition of contemporary drawing. UNC Asheville seeks to examine drawing as it is practiced and defined by today’s artists.  Such an exhibition will demonstrate the continued significance of drawing through both conventional and innovative methods. Accepted work will be exhibited (with thanks while the UNC Asheville Tucker Cooke Gallery is under renovation) in the Holden Gallery on the campus of Warren Wilson College from January 18th, 2019 through February 22nd, 2019. A supplemental exhibition-in-print with additional Jurors’ Selection works will coincide with the Holden Gallery exhibition.

Eligibility: Open to all artists who are 18 years of age or older. All work must be original, completed in the past two years and cannot have been exhibited at The University of North Carolina Asheville before. It is at the Juror’s discretion to choose single or multiple works from each artist’s submission.

Media: In effort to support the breadth in contemporary drawing, media is open to any traditional or experimental drawing media welcoming both two or three-dimensional works, video and/or installation. Size is open to works that can fit through a standard set of double doors, 10’3” ceiling height and up to 42’ for both floor and wall space.

Catalogue: A full-color catalogue of the exhibition will be printed. Each accepted artist will receive one complimentary copy, additional copies will be available for purchase. View previous catalogues at using search words “Drawing Discourse”

Awards: $2000 in cash prizes, as chosen in person by the Juror, will be awarded during the exhibition opening reception. This award amount has doubled this year due to the generous contribution from UNC Asheville Professor Emeritus, S. Tucker Cooke.

Juror: With a Ph.D in art history from Columbia University, Claire Gilman currently serves as the Chief Curator at The Drawing Center, New York. Curatorial work includes exhibitions such as; Edvard Munch: The Modern Life of the Soul, The Storyteller and Arte Povera: Selections from the Sonnabend Collection. Gilman has taught art history and critical theory at Columbia University; The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College; The Corcoran College for Art and Design; and MoMA. She has also written extensively for publications including Art Journal, CAA Reviews, Documents, Frieze, and October.
