Juried Show Submissions

The 2022 High School Juried Show will be held May 7 through May 29, 2022, at The Hyde Collection, Glens Falls, New York.
Jurors: Anne Diggory, Doretta Miller, and Victoria van der Laan

The Hyde Collection presents the 31st Annual High School Juried Show. We are honored to be hosting this exhibition of over 100 works by students from Essex, Hamilton, Saratoga Warren, and Washington Counties.

A jury of three arts professionals will select submissions from regional school districts. The blind adjudication process blocks the names of schools and students from the jurors. The criteria that will be judged include: composition, principles of design, exploration of media, technical application, and unique approaches to artmaking. From all entries, jurors will choose 200 works in the first round of adjudication, and after a second round, 100 pieces will be exhibited.

High school students in grades 9 through 12 from Essex, Hamilton, Saratoga, Warren, and Washington Counties may submit work through their schools or individually if they are homeschooled. Up to five submissions are allowed per student.

The Hyde will invoice each school a $35 participation fee and a $3 student participation fee for each student that submits.

Entries will be accepted online through March 18, 2022. Student artists may submit up to five representative images of artwork in jpg/jpeg format (5MB each max.), up to three video works (or excerpt) in MP4 format, totaling no more than 10 minutes in length; a brief artist statement (max. 250 words).
