Attention Student Artists! Start getting your pieces ready! The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center will be hosting the annual student art exhibit again this March in the Main Gallery. It is open to any student in grades 7-12 in eastern Potter county, all of Tioga County, and western Bradford County in public, private or homeschool. Each student
may submit two pieces. Artwork must be original. Copies of published works or anyone else’s art are not acceptable. Two-dimensional pieces need to either be framed or
mounted on a board/construction paper. The maximum size for 2-dimensional work is 36 inches in any direction. Sculptural and ceramic work must fit through a 6’x8’ doorway and weigh less than 70 pounds. Digital work is a possibility. Please contact the director to discuss.

There is an entry form that must be filled out for each piece in the exhibit. Forms can be completed ahead of time by requesting one from the director, or when the work is
dropped off. Artwork must be hand-delivered to and picked up from the Gmeiner at 134 Main Street, Wellsboro, PA 16901. Students, their families, or teachers can drop off
work at the Gmeiner between the hours of 12-6PM on Friday, March 1st or from 3-6PM on Monday, March 4th.

We ask that our young artists do not submit works that are incomplete, still wet, broken, etc.

The exhibit will open on Saturday, March 10th with a reception from 2-4PM to celebrate all of the students’ work. There will be light refreshments available for attendees. Student artists and their families are encouraged to attend! The exhibit will then be open to the public during the Gmeiner’s normal operating hours of 12-6PM every day but Monday until the last day of the exhibit, March 30th. Students and teachers will be able to pick up artwork on Monday, April 1st from 12-6PM and Tuesday, April 2nd from 3-6PM.

For more details or any questions, please contact Carrie Heath, the Director of the Gmeiner at 570-724-1917 or [email protected]. More information
