All high-school-aged students from Navajo and Apache counties, including home-schoolers, are eligible to submit original two- and three-dimensional art or graphic designs for the 37th Annual Juried High School Exhibit, sponsored by Northland Pioneer College (NPC).
High school seniors are eligible for Best of Show prizes and will compete for NPC art tuition scholarships, (worth up to 15 credit hours). Students need not be art majors to accept the scholarships but will be required to take one art class per semester to maintain the scholarship award. Ribbons are awarded for winning entries in either 2-dimensional – Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Photography, Computer Illustration, and Graphic Design – or 3-dimensional – Sculpture, Ceramics, Jewelry, Fiber Arts, Glass, Wood, Metal Art, Weaving, or any other 3-D material. Entries are not limited to class assignments; students do not have to be enrolled in art or photography classes to submit their work.
Selections will be based on creativity, originality, craftsmanship, and quality. NPC Art Faculty will judge the entries. “It is an honor to have one’s work chosen for a juried show like this,” states Art Faculty and Talon Gallery Director Magda Gluszek.
Entries must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24, 2023, 11:59 PM, MST. A short video with tips and tricks for photographing and submitting your artwork can be found at www.youtube.com/watch?v=q40if1ecyB0. Entry forms are available online at www.npc.edu/TalonGallery.
The student’s work will be featured virtually on the Talon Gallery’s website, https://www.npc.edu/talon-art-gallery/current-exhibition, and in the NPC Show Low campus’ Aspen Center Talon Gallery, from April 1 through May 12.
The gallery is open to the public Monday through Thursday, 7:30 A.M. to 7:30 P.M., and Friday, 7:30 A.M. to 4 P.M. The Show Low campus is located at 1001 W. Deuce of Clubs. The Aspen Center is located closest to entrances and parking from West Whipple.
