Studio Art Preparation & Practice @ Oakland Campus: Exhibiting + Submitting

Designed to assist students in Studio Arts 1370 with Professor Jenkins

Submitting your Work

Generally, an artist's résumé contains the following sections and should list all relevant art work.

  1. Education
  2. Solo Exhibitions
  3. Group Exhibitions
  4. Residencies
  5. Press
  6. Collections

We encourage you to read artist statements by those whose work you admire and who challenge you.

Guides and Resources

Often referred to as a portfolio, images of your work are by far the most important part of your submission package. Images may include 2-D and 3-D work, moving images and new media and physical images. 

Exhibiting Your Work

An artist's website should be polished, simple and contain content you would be comfortable showing anyone.  Essentially, this is the artist's digital portfolio.  The site should be easy to navigate and kept up to date.  The most common components:

  • Home page
  • Contact
  • Images
  • CV

There are a range of professional digital portfolio platforms for artists to use to build a web presence.  We encourage you to explore these platforms and the sites of artists, galleries and nonprofits for inspiration and to see what to do and what to avoid in order to showcase your artwork successfully.
