The competition is open to all artists, both amateur and professional of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.
All submitted works must be original and have been created within the past two years. Works exhibited in a prior Biggs Museum exhibition will not be considered. All objects and installations must be designed to be exhibited on the walls, on the floor or within cases. Works to be hung from walls must be constructed and wired on the back to accommodate installation using appropriate hooks, eyes and wires. Framing must be to professional standards. Biggs Museum staff may make recommendations to expedite this requirement. Cardboard backing is not permitted. Poorly matted or framed paintings and other art forms are subject to disqualification. Plain white, cream or light gray mats are preferred. Double matting is permitted for two-dimensional works under glass. Wall-hung objects submitted for this exhibition must be no larger than 60” in any direction. Sculptures and installations requiring bases, pedestals, and other display furnishing or equipment should be provided by the artist.
