Letter from Tarble Arts Center

Illinois Artists –

This is to let you know that entries for the 19th Biennial Drawing/Watercolor: Illinois will be accepted starting October 11th and continuing through October 28th at the Tarble Arts Center, Eastern Illinois University. Attached is an interactive PDF version of the Biennial prospectus to use to enter art for the competition.

If you are unable to access or open the attached PDF prospectus please contact us and we will mail you a hard copy. Contact us at tarble@eiu.edu or 217-581-ARTS (-2787).

A copy of the interactive PDF prospectus is also available online. On the Tarble Arts homepage, scroll down to December 8 -19th Biennial Drawing/Watercolor: Illinois and click on the link that says “Click here for a .pdf of the rules and entry form.”

The juror for this edition of the Biennial is Carmon Colangelo. Colangelo is Dean of the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis. Colangelo is a widely exhibited artist known for large mixed-media works on paper that combine digital and traditional processes. His most recent works deal with the phenomenon of globalization and the disappearance of local culture, and the gradual homogenization of American life. Colangelo’s art has been featured in 20 solo shows and dozens of group exhibitions world-wide, and has been collected by many of the nation’s leading museums.

We hope you will consider submitting art for entry. Please forward this message to other Illinois artists you think might be interested in entering.

Thank you.
