The University of Vermont Staff Art Exhibit will be run from August 31st - September 21st, 2016 in the Livak Fireplace Lounge, 4th Floor, Davis Center. The Exhibit has been planned to coincide with Staff Appreciation Week and is one way recognize and appreciate the talents of our colleagues.

What kind of art will be accepted for the exhibit?
We are looking for all types of art: paintings, sculptures, pastels, pottery, watercolors, ceramics, photography, quilts, mixed media, and the list goes on.
Do I need to provide my own display materials?
If your art work is two-dimensional, it is preferred that the piece be framed or ready to hang. Staff Council and the Davis Center will not frame any art work.
If your art work is three-dimensional and requires a pedestal or has special display needs, please let us know. There are some pedestals available to display a limited amount of art work.
How many pieces of art can I submit?
Space is limited to one or two works per person, dependent on size and medium, and will be accepted on a first come first reserve basis. Our hope is to have as many staff members as possible participate.
What happens if my art is lost, damaged, or stolen?
All participants must submit and sign a Davis Center Art Exhibit Loan Agreement in order to show their work. The University of Vermont is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen art work and will not indemnify or insure art work for damages to the piece itself or for any loss that may result from installation at the Davis Center.
Will there be a Sixth Annual UVM Staff Art Exhibit Reception?
Yes. The Sixth Annual UVM Staff Art Exhibit Reception will occur on the Tuesday of Staff Appreciation Week (to be confirmed) from 12 noon to 1:00 pm in the Livak Fireplace Lounge, 4th Floor, Davis Center. This will be an opportunity for all artists to talk about their art and interact with colleagues. This event will be part of larger Staff Appreciation Week events.
