Competitions 33rd Annual International Exhibition
International Deadline: November 16, 2018 – The Annual International Exhibition is a juried visual art competition organized by the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Tyler. Internationally known artists, curators, and scholars have served as jurors selecting works for exhibition created by some of the best contemporary artists working today. The Department purchases three to six works from the exhibition each year; purchased works are added to our permanent collection. The permanent collection serves as an educational teaching resource; much of the permanent collection is exhibited throughout the UT Tyler main campus.
This competition is open to any artist who is over the age of 18, working in two-dimensional media. Paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs created in the last three years are welcome.
