SUNY Orange invites visual artists living or working in Orange County to submit works for “Illuminations,” a juried art exhibit scheduled for the Spring that will serve as the debut show in the college’s new Newburgh campus art gallery. Prizes for first and second place will be awarded in two categories: works on canvas or paper, and sculpture.

“Illuminations” will be on exhibit from March 3 through May 6 and will herald the opening of CenterArts, the gallery space in Kaplan Hall, SUNY Orange’s new classroom building located at the intersection of Grand and First streets in Newburgh. Construction of Kaplan Hall has just recently been completed and the building will be open for classes beginning Jan. 18. The “Illuminations” exhibit will be on display during the Kaplan Hall dedication celebration scheduled for March 24. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 1, 2011.

Artists are asked to mail CDs, photographs or prints of up to two pieces, as well as a résumé, brief biography and an application fee of $25 to the Cultural Affairs Office, SUNY Orange, Newburgh Campus, 5 Washington Center, Newburgh, NY 12550.
