Images 2021 Juried Exhibition

Images 2021 is our gallery exhibition of drawings, paintings, mixed media, photography, hand-pulled prints, watercolors, fiber, paper, and digital art. Instead of hanging in its traditional home of Schlow Centre Region Library, this year’s Images exhibition will be online due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The show’s juror, Betsey Batchelor, will award a minimum of $1,800 in prize money as follows: one Best of Show Award and at least four merit awards. In addition, the juror will choose an award for best pastel, an award for best drawing, an award for best photograph, and an award for best student submission. We will announce award winners at a virtual awards reception in July 2021.

Images 2021 is open to artists whose primary residence is in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Digital images of original work produced within the last three years may be submitted. The deadline to apply is June 4, 2021.

This exhibition is made possible in part by sponsorships from the State College Framing Company & Gallery and the Sturtz-Davis family. Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support!
