Open to artists living within a 40-mile radius of Glenside, Pennsylvania, "Works on Paper" is distinguished by a selection process in which the juror reviews actual artworks brought to the gallery (as opposed to 35mm slides or digital representations). There are no size restrictions on works brought to the gallery.

Works can be hand-delivered on October 29, 30, 31, and November 1, 2009. Entry fees are $15 for one work; $20 for two; $25 for three. View guidelines for more schedule details and further information.

Cash prizes totaling up to $2,500 will be awarded to selected entries.
Additional prizes include the Philadelphia Museum of Art Award (selected for purchase consideration) and a purchase award for Arcadia University’s permanent collection. Artist’s included in this year’s “Works on Paper” exhibition will also be eligible for consideration for “A Closer Look 8”.

This year’s exhibition will be juried by João Ribas (born 1979, Braga, Portugal). Until last month, Ribas was Curator at The Drawing Center (New York City), a position he began in February 2007. This fall he starts his new position as Curator of Exhibitions at the MIT List Visual Arts Center (Cambridge, Massachusetts). His final exhibition at The Drawing Center is a landmark survey of the drawing-based work of Ree Morton (1930-1977). Entitled "Ree Morton: At the Still Point of a Turning World," it will remain on view through December 18, 2009.
