On My Own Time Offers Opportunity to Showcase Creative and Artistic Talents

Calling all creatives: The organizers of Syracuse University’s On My Own Time exhibition are looking for artwork submissions from full- and part-time faculty and staff members in the categories of painting, ceramics, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, photography, collage/assemblage, fiber art, glasswork, computer art, metalwork and mixed media.

Criteria for submission are listed on the OMOT_2019_Artist_Registration_Form, which is due by Monday, April 15. The form may be emailed to Lucille Murphy at lumurphy@syr.edu or faxed to x1063. Note to applicants who are art instructors: you may not submit work in your primary discipline.  The same registration form may be used for volunteering; volunteers are needed to assist with logging in artwork, assisting in hanging and taking down the exhibition, and helping with artwork pick up.

On My Own Time (OMOT), now in its 46th year, is co-sponsored by CNY Arts and the Everson Museum of Art. It was developed as a community arts program to bring visibility to the creative skills of people employed in local businesses and organizations.

Syracuse University’s in-house exhibition opens Monday, April 29, and continues through the closing reception for artists, family members and volunteers on Wednesday, May 15. The exhibition will be in the Noble Room in Hendricks Chapel and may be viewed weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A panel of professional artists assembled by CNY Arts will serve as judges for the in-house exhibition. Artwork selected by the panel will be featured in a public exhibition at the Everson Museum in the fall.
