The 16th Annual College Show

Call for Art

Deadline: Sunday, December 1, 2019
Submit here.

Be bold and submit your artwork to this year’s College Show at ArtsWorcester, your downtown art gallery! All students from Worcester-area colleges, at all levels of expertise, are eligible. Submission is free. Show your favorite project from last year, or the piece you made in the course that you liked most.

We make it easy for you to learn how to submit art to an exhibition and have it displayed in a professional gallery. Get exhibition experience before your senior show, or start building your resume now. Your work will be seen by over one thousand people, many of whom buy art.

Cash prizes will be awarded. The deadline is Sunday, December 1, 2019. This year’s College Show will be juried by Lynne Cooney, Artistic Director and chief curator of the Boston University Art Galleries.

Submission requirements:

  • You must be enrolled, in any major or degree program, in a Worcester-area college or university. Seniors graduating early and the class of 2019 are eligible if artists are able to deliver and collect accepted works.
  • You may submit up to three works in any artistic media, including fine craft, digital, and video.

Submit your art online here.


We’ll let you know if your artwork has been accepted by the juror by January 1, 2020. The exhibit opens on Friday, January 31, 2020, 6:00 to 9:00 PM, and runs through February.
