Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine is seeking entries for its 27th Annual International Exhibi­tion on Animals in Art.

The 2014 show will feature works of art depicting animals in various media and will run from March 29-April 27. The deadline for entries is Jan. 3.

The judge and juror will be Jordana Pomeroy, PhD, executive director of the LSU Museum of Art since 2012. Previously, she served as the chief curator at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., from 1996-2012.

The awards will include $1,000 for best of show. One work of art will appear on a cover of the JAVMA.

About 180 artists from 35 states and Canada submitted 426 entries for the 2013 exhibition—75 of which appeared in the show.

The exhibition is open to artists 18 years of age or older. Works must be original, and artists must price all work for sale. The veterinary school will retain a 20 percent commission on sales.

Artists should submit their entries as digital images in JPG or TIF format on a compact disc or in an email message. A nonrefundable, $15 fee must accompany each entry. Artists should make a check or money order payable to Louisiana State University with the note “Animals in Art entry” in the memo line, or provide credit card information.
