February 8, 2018

College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Visual and Performing Arts Department is proud to be hosting the second-annual Juried Art Show. College students across the Treasure Valley are invited to submit artwork responding to the theme “Small Works/Big World”. Selected works will be displayed in the CWI Art Gallery during the College’s annual Connections Project event, April 26, and will remain on display through early August. One artist’s work, selected by a juror, will receive the Connection’s Excellence Award and be honored during the awards ceremony. The selected artist will additionally receive a $100 prize.

Last year, the exhibition was honored to have Karen Bubb, cultural planner at the City of Boise Department of Arts, serve as juror. Bubb selected 23 works from more than 60 entries to be featured at the Connections Project event. Boise State University student, Andrew Mason’s, piece entitled “Synchronicity” was selected as the winner of the 2017 Connections Excellence Award.

John McMahon, the Artist Services Director for the Idaho Commission on the Arts and a professional artist, has been selected as the juror for this year’s Juried Art Show.

Artwork must be submitted by Friday, March 23. For full submission details please visit the Connection’s Project submissions page or email juriedartshow@cwi.edu with questions.

Mark your calendars for this year's Connections Project, April 26, 2018, at the Nampa Campus Academic Building from 3-8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
