Celebrate Staff! Celebrate Art!

UVM Staff Council will host the Ninth Annual UVM Staff Art Exhibit coming in September 2019 in the Davis Center.

For more information contact the Staff Council at Staff.Council@uvm.edu or 656-4493

 

Who can participate?

All University of Vermont regular staff members (full and part time).

If you are a staff retiree, temporary staff employee, or Foundation employee, please note this on the application when you are asked for your department. You will be added to a waitlist for consideration to participate after the deadline if space is still available. Unfortunately this event is not open to faculty or instructors due to space limitations.

When and Where is the UVM Staff Art Exhibit?

The University of Vermont Staff Art Exhibit will be run during the month of September 2019 in the Livak Fireplace Lounge, 4th Floor, Davis Center. The Exhibit has been planned to coincide with Staff Appreciation Week and is one way to recognize and appreciate the talents of our colleagues.

How do I sign up to participate?

The application form is located here:

www.uvm.edu/daviscenter/staff-show-art-submissions

What kind of art will be accepted for the exhibit?

We are looking for primarily, but not exclusively, 2-dimensional art or works that hang flat against the wall, such as paintings, pastels, watercolors, photography, quilts, mixed media. 3-dimensional works will be considered based on whether the space can accommodate the piece.

Do I need to provide my own display materials?

If your artwork 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 artwork.

If your art is three-dimensional and requires a pedestal or has special display needs, please let us know. There are a limited number of pedestals available.

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 served 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 Ninth Annual UVM Staff Art Exhibit Reception?

Yes. The Ninth Annual UVM Staff Art Exhibit Reception will take place in the Livak Fireplace Lounge, 4th Floor, Davis Center on Tuesday, September 10th, 2019, from 12:00 - 1:00 PM. Light refreshments will be provided.
