National Juried Exhibition

Lycoming College Downtown Art Gallery

Blurred Expectations

Lycoming College Art Gallery, located in Downtown Williamsport, Pennsylvania, is seeking submissions for their National Juried Exhibition, Blurred Expectations. 

Criminals! Subordinate! Uneducated! These are a few of many terms that are commonly associated with black people. This exhibition gives black artists an opportunity to rewrite the script that has been forced upon them by showing a side that is often ignored.  Though many people do not agree with such associations, these stereotypes are still at the forefront of media and society which creates division within black communities and their multiethnic counterparts. This exhibition blurs the line between how black people are portrayed and who they truly are outside of their race. By focusing on the artistic interests of black artists, viewers not only reflect on the many forms that inspiration and creativity can take but challenge the false portrayals of black people in society.


Professional artists as well as student artists are encouraged to enter. Entries must represent original works of art that address the stated theme. There is no size restriction, other than what can fit through our gallery doors. There is no restriction governing date of completion.


All media (2D and 3D) will be accepted including video. Please follow the submission guidelines below.
