The Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine is seeking entries for its International Exhibition on Animals in Art.
The show features works of art depicting animals in various media. The 2016 exhibition will run from March 11-April 8. The deadline for entries is Jan. 8, 2016.
The awards will include $1,000 for best of show. One work of art will appear on a cover of the JAVMA.
For the 2014 exhibition, some 160 artists from 32 states and Canada submitted 383 entries—73 of which appeared in the show. LSU did not hold the exhibition in 2015.
The exhibition is open to artists 18 years of age or older. Works may be in any medium with the exception of video, installation, and audio works. Artists must price all work for sale, and the veterinary school will retain a 20 percent commission on sales.
Entry information is available by visiting lsu.edu/vetmed/events and clicking on “International Exhibition on Animals in Art.” The fee is $20 for the first entry and $15 for each additional entry, up to a maximum of three entries.
