Duke Health Employee Art Show

The Duke Health Employee Art Show – Call for Participation

Delivering of Entries:  Thursday, July 19, 2018 from noon – 2 p.m. at the Mars Gallery Hall.

Exhibit Dates:  July 19 – September 12, 2018 – Mars Galleries I & II

For 40 years, Arts & Health at Duke has believed that access to the arts is essential to the health and well-being of patients & staff.  Therefore, we invite and encourage all Duke Health Staff to share their work in this all inclusive Duke Health Employee Art Show.  Works can be a visual representation of how you recharge, find inspiration, or reveal a talent not usually shared in your workplace. 

Eligibility –  Current Duke Health Employees & Volunteers are eligible to participate.  Artwork must be original artwork, no copies, and be completed within the last 3 years and not previously displayed in this venue.

Medium – Two and three-dimensional pieces will be accepted, including but not limited to oils, acrylics, graphite, charcoal, clay, wood, beadwork, metal, glass, paper, photographs and mixed media.

Size & Number of Submissions – Due to limited space we can accept two-dimensional (2d) works no larger than 30” h x 30” w x 6” d and three-dimensional (3d) works no larger than 30” h x 30” w x 12” d.  All works must be dry and ready to hang with hanging wire securely attached to the back of all 2d works, and stable bases on 3d works.  We can only accept one piece per participant at this time.

No Pre-Registration, Classification or Awards – We no longer require pre-registration, classifications or offer monetary awards.  Each entry will be equally appreciated and displayed.

Label Information - Please download and print out the Entry Label and have it completed before you arrive.  You can download the forms here, Entry Label Form (.pdf)  This will help check-in / installation go much quicker.

Arts & Health reserves the right to reject work whose theme may be unacceptable or inappropriate for this venue, and works that are not completely dry or threaten to damage other works due to instability of hanging devices or bases.
