The Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries exhibit works by nationally and internationally recognized self-taught artists, contemporary artists working in all media, and local and regional artists connected with Old Dominion University.


The Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries and ODU Art Department welcome submissions for the 2023 Juried Student Exhibition.

This exhibition is open to all students taking classes in the Art Department during the submission period from Spring 2022 until Spring 2023. All media will be considered, and students are encouraged to submit up to five (5) works for consideration by the juror. For this exhibition, a series of pieces will be considered as a single work, space permitting. Artwork not previously exhibited in the Gordon Art Galleries is strongly preferred.

The 2023 Juried Student Exhibition will run from Friday, March 03 through Saturday, April 08, 2023.


All submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, January 15, 2023. Artists will be notified of the juror's selections by Friday, February 3, 2023.



Accepted work should be delivered to the Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries between Monday, February 20 and Friday, February 24, 2023 by appointment or during normal hours of operation listed on the website.

This is a professional exhibition. Artwork must arrive installation-ready with all appropriate hardware included. Two-dimensional artwork is preferably framed, and if framed must include wire for hanging. If the work is meant to be displayed in an alternative manner, all necessary installation materials and instructions must be provided. Three-dimensional artwork will be displayed on pedestals provided by the Gordon Galleries. Artwork not installation-ready will not be included in the exhibition even if selected by the juror. Any and all questions regarding installation and display methods should be directed to Gordon Galleries' staff at gordongalleries@odu.edu.



All exhibited works will be considered for exhibition in the Dean’s Selection Exhibition, which will be on view for one year in the Dean’s office suite (BAL 9th Floor) following the Juried Student Exhibition.

The Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries cannot fund any shipping expenses for this exhibition.
