VSU Call for Student Proposals


Located down the hall from the Dedo Maranville Fine Arts Gallery, the Martha G. Smart Gallery offers a unique venue for student/class exhibitions, installations, and collaborative ventures. A student interested in exhibiting must submit a signed gallery contract, a written proposal briefly stating the intent of the desired use of the exhibition space, and 5 images representational of their written proposal. For a group exhibition one student must assume responsibility and sign the contract, though all exhibiting student names must be listed in proposal. Apply for an exhibit now! Submit your proposal to Professor Julie Bowland
