CALL TO ARTISTS: Vermont Undergraduates at the Chaffee in Rutland

The Chaffee Art Center will honor the works of younger Vermont artists with the February 18 opening of an exhibit titled Made in Vermont: The Art of VT Undergrads. Any full-time student enrolled in any college or university in Vermont is encouraged to submit works, in any media. Students do not need to be enrolled in an art program to participate.

Vermont undergraduates are encouraged to check out the guidelines and application at The Chaffee’s website, and submit 1 or 2 pieces of work. Application deadline is Tuesday, Feb.1 and must include a $5.00 entry fee. Delivery of artwork to The Chaffee can be no later than Sun., Feb. 13, from 12:00-4:00. Other information, dates and deadlines can be found at the above website. Artists may choose to put their pieces up for sale.

In this exhibit, The Chaffee hopes to explore what our young artists are thinking about, how they use art to express themselves and to offer budding artists the experience of being involved in a professional art exhibition. The opening reception for this show will include a live acoustic performance by the VT jam-band, Twiddle, who met while involved with Castleton State College. Vermont undergrads! Show us how you express yourself!
