Art on Paper

Deadline: March 31, 2010 by 5 pm (RECEIVE)

Art on Paper

Weatherspoon Art Museum
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro
Greensbo, NC
November 7, 2010 – February 6, 2011

The Weatherspoon Art Museum is currently accepting submissions for its biennial exhibition, Art on Paper 2010, which will be held from November 7, 2010 – February 6, 2011. This exhibition presents a broad range of contemporary art in which the use of paper, either as a surface or material, is a primary consideration. Organized by the Curator of Exhibitions at the Weatherspoon Art Museum with the support of xpedx and The Dillard Fund, and the F.M. Kirby Foundation, Inc., Art on Paper includes works by both emerging and established artists from the United States and around the world.

Art on Paper 2010 represents a forty-five year partnership between the Weatherspoon and xpedx (formerly the Dillard Paper Company), whose long-standing sponsorship of Art on Paper has allowed the Weatherspoon to acquire a number of works from each year’s exhibition. Since 1965, The Dillard Fund has fostered the growth of the Weatherspoon’s nationally recognized Dillard Collection of Art on Paper, which today numbers close to 550 works.

• Only one-of-a-kind artworks on, or composed primarily of, paper will be considered for inclusion in the exhibition. Editioned prints and photographs will not be accepted.
• Upon acceptance, works must be suitably framed and/or ready for installation.
• All works must be for sale. A “Price on Request” designation is not acceptable.
• Artists whose work was included in Art on Paper 2008 or who are currently enrolled students are ineligible to apply.
• All submissions must be received at the Weatherspoon by 5 pm on March 31, 2010. Materials received after March 31 are ineligible.
