Upcoming Shows

19th Annual Beyond Borders 
International College Art Competition 
Showing May 19th- June 6th

Beyond Borders is designed to showcase outstanding artwork created by Fine Art students in the western United States and Canada in order to stimulate dialogue and encourage exchange among new artists, their peers, and the established art community. The title, “Beyond Borders,” exemplifies our dedication to encourage communication across community, national, international and social borders. The title also serves to remind viewers and participants that art has the power to transcend all boundaries. 

All currently enrolled undergraduate students in California, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia are eligible to enter.  The artworks selected for Beyond Borders, as well as the winners, will be determined by a panel of jurors.  The First, Second and Third place winners will be awarded cash prizes (which in the past have totaled over $1000).  For more information or to apply, please see the following prospectus and application documents.
