The 2015 CEPA & Big Orbit Member Exhibit Awards

CEPA will be giving out three awards—two from the CEPA Gallery exhibit and one from the Big Orbit exhibit—recognizing those artists who demonstrate an elevated level of artistic maturity and skill in their work.

The winners will receive a solo exhibit of their work in 2016–2017.

To be considered for an award, artists must submit the following materials along with their Members Exhibit submission:

  • 10 images formatted as JPEG’s and sized to 1500px in the largest dimension labeled Last Name, First, & Image # (ex. Smith_John_01.jpg)
  • An image script that includes Titles, Year, and Physical Dimensions
  • An artist statement
  • An artist resumé

This facet of the Members Exhibit is open to all artists as an option, and does not affect regular submissions to the exhibit.
